Installing Windows 7 Drive options (advanced) doesn't appear

When installing Windows 7 and getting the window "Where do you want to install Windows?", bellow the box with partitions I can't see selection Drive options (advanced). It just doesn't appear... That way I can't format or delete the partitions. What problem could it be? Is there possibility to format partition other way? Thank you for your help!

    If your goal is to wipe the drive before installing the OS, you could use a third party solution. I am a fan of Killdisk but Gparted Live is also an awesome solution for other partition edit tools.

    Here's a link to Gparted:

    I think Gparted has an option to make a bootable CD within the installer, but you can always build an ISO and burn it to disk or a USB drive.
