    When you try to format C: you have to do it from a startup floppy.

    Though if you are having trouble finding your HDD, that problem will need to be sorted first.

    Make sure your bios sees the HDD when you boot up. It could be a wrong setting in your bios, or a loose cable to your HDD, or the HDD could be on it's way out.
