How to format windows if its in installation?

Yo

Im trying to format my old bros pc but when i just boot off the disk is just resumes the current installation of windows. We do not want the version as its old and we want to install sp3 which we bought yesterday. Also becuae we lost the cd key for the sp1 one and we cant find it anywhere and continue to get to windows then restart like a normal edition.

hmm what to do.
