Welcome to Seven Forums bman55.
There is a good tutorial on Clean Installation with Windows 7
that will explain the procedure. In step #7&8 it will show you how to get to the format option.
For other tutorials on Windows 7 installation see the sticky thread Tutorial quick reference list for Installing Windows 7
, there are many tutorials that will help with all the installation processes.
