What you need to do is boot off of your Windows media (DVD or USB stick) and start the Windows installation. When prompted, select custom or advanced installation. There, you'll see the option to reformat your C drive.

Boot off the Installation disk, when you get to the 'Where do you want to install Windows' screen, choose 'Drive Options (Advanced). Use this to delete all partitions, and install to 'Unallocated Space, - allows Windows installation to create all necessary partitions...
