Boot the PC and keep tapping the delete key until it enters set up, look for and load BIOS defaults, press F10, press enter, type Y, press enter

Are you repairing or looking to format and clean install?

If you have nothing on the drive, an option is to use a drive wiper which can cure a few things

Let me know if you want to look at that way

To completely erase all data on the drive(s)

Click this to download Boot and Nuke

Click this for a guide to using Boot and Nuke

Use the autonuke option, which could take 8 hours or so to format a 200 GB Hard Drive, then when you run Windows set up, check it is creating a RAW1 partition on C, if the drive letter is different, restart the PC and it should default to C

also everytime the setup gets to the point of needing to restart it freezes

In addition to removing personal data, DBAN can also be used to return drives to a pristine state for reuse
