You need to click ‘Advanced Options’ (or something like that) at the lower right corner while having the drive highlighted. You just need to delete it and recreate a new partition, no ‘Format’ word can be seen there.

When you see this screen, highlight the drive and click ‘Drive options(advanced)’. That button should be there unless you didn’t boot directly into the DVD,

Use “Custom instalation”, delete drive C, create it again, format and install. That’s how I did.

That’s how it’s supposed to be, if you delete C.

To be honest I don’t understand a thing from what you are saying. I have installed windows 8 like 15 times already (on different pc’s), boot the windows, use custom install, format the partition you desire to install windows, and then it’s straight forward.

What kind of errors do you get? Can you make a picture with your mobile phone and upload it somewhere?
