No it won`t.

There`s nothing to erase what`s on the dvd.

I decided to try the usb (tutorial) download again. I have just reformatted drive D: and Drive C:

There is one more drive titled Partition 1 - PQ Service.

Should I reformat this partition as well?

I'm thinking there may be an old windows download there. The partition is 14.7 gb and only 3.2 gb of free space.

Delete all the partitions if you don`t have any data on them.
