Could you attach a screenshot of Disk Management?

You should try write the ISO to a DVD and boot from it.

you can't format the C: drive unless you boot from the DVD.

it means put the DVD in your drive, restart your computer, and select DVD-ROM as first boot device. Press any key to boot from DVD...
