Youre supposed to boot to the cd (set the BIOS to boot to cd) then go into the recovery console and use the diskpart utility

Hey guys.

I have had the same problem before and it really gets to me. If you have a second computer i would just get the hard drive out of the computer that keeps trying to install windows and put that hard drive into your second computer and set it as slave. then you can turn on your computer and you can format the slave hard drive that way.

Or if you can get your CD to boot into windows installer by making it boot to CD that would be cool to.
