still not letting me reformat the c-drive.. im about ready to throw this computer out the window
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.
its still no button.. but im going to bed.. ill try again the morning
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,http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/1099681-formatting-drive-in-windows-8/page__p__595104375#entry595104375
PS : Remember to use ‘Custom’ install
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.
its still their.. but not displaying.. and still unable to install windows 8
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?
