  1. The restore discs should be able to format your hard drives. Just use them and see how far you get.
  2. put the disk in. it should ask you to press any key to boot from disk. do that.

    It will give will you the drive. most of the time you want to delete the C: drive. after that it will show unpartitioned space. you would want to create a partition and install your operating system.
