Sorry you can not format the Primary Boot Partition

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Folder Access Denined in ...

If you do you destroy the Primary Boot Files that get copied to the Root of the HDD.

If you use a Boot Disc you can delete and format the Partition but Windows will not start to load and you'll be required to do a In Place/Repair Install before you can use your computer again.
