Boot into the DOS section and get the command window "C" prompt.
Then type c:\ format c:
Or type c:\ format /u

Before you do so, You will need to makesure your system bios is set to boot from your CD drive.

Once formated, Install CD in drive and reboot computer.

Goodluck...

Make sure your OS is a full edition and not a upgrade.
And that you have the KEY numbers for it.
