Assuming a standard installation, then your operating system files are located on that partition. Therefore you can't format the drive from within windows.

If you may wish to reinstall your operating system either by a recovery partition/utility or recovery media (DVD). This action has the ability to format your system partition as part of it's process.

Yes if you want reinstalling OS, during the setup you could select install to the original C partition and there is an advanced option on the left bottom, you could select format it before install.

If it's a laptop there will be instructions in your user Manual to restore to Factory Settings, the drive will be formatted...

While you are installing as OS, when it asks you to select the partition, you can format any drive you want even C: drive.
