Serious W7 Installation Issue

Hey guys!

I bough a Advent 4211C net book not long ago preloaded with Windows XP, after a while I got bored or it and decided to install Unbuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 completely over it!
BAD MISTAKE! After a while all sort of stuff started to happen!

So I decided to install Windows 7; I had made USB to boot off and everything. I started the set up and got to the part where you need to select a partition.

I wanted to just delete the Ubuntu/ Write over it but the set up kept saying the partition is the wrong file system and should be NFTS or something ..

How do i change the file format of the hard-drive?

**God damn you Ubuntu ! - Stupid penguin **

You should be able to do a custom install, then when you get to the format part here should be advanced options, where you can completely format the drive and create a new partition.
