If you can't boot off the Windows CD then you don't need to format, as you most likely have hardware issues.

It would be much faster to go to Bootdisk.Com and put it on a flash drive.

Though I believe you're wasting your time here.

So if I'm understanding this correctly, he can't boot to anything - even the Windows CD. And because using the Windows CD does not use the hard drive, I would deduce it does not need to be reformatted.
