Windows 7: No "advanced" option at partitions menu

Windows XP
No "advanced" option at partitions menu

Hey guys, during the setup I have no "advanced" option at the partitions menu which must contain the formatting option. I have the partitions menu and only two buttons under it: "Refresh" and "Load Driver".

Any suggestions?

If Drive Options (Advanced) did not appear on that screen it is because the installer was run from Windows and not booted.

You'll need to boot the installer to use those tools, or access the Command Line to wipe the HD per Bare foot's tutorial.
