I'm trying to do a clean reinstall, but I can't reformat the drive. I don't get very far, menu 'where do you want to install window', which is supposed to have a Format option, it doesn't! Any opinions?

To do a clean install you should do it booting from the DVD and not from within Windows. Format option should be under Custom (advanced) option. Have a look here.
