when formatting press 'restore device defaults' and i this only works for local disk D or a CD/DVD/USB, it dosnt work on C as it has the system in it and needs a CD to format and reinstall windows

Right, you can't format the drive that you are currently using as a boot drive. You will need to boot from something else, like an optical drive if you want to format the boot HDD.
