Your MiniPE disk may be faulty, or an old version. Use your XP CD. Just before installing it will permit format and partition if required.

Format a pc do you mean format a harddrive using a mini-pc?

plenty of Hard Drive wiping tools on the UBCD - http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

and a whole lot more besides - one CD for your toolkit (download the ISO file and burn to a CD)

I have formatted a lot of hard drives and the best program I have used is Derik's Boot n Nuke  http://www.dban.org/download It also has a flash drive download you can use in case you CD Rom wont work.  When it comes up with the screen, you can simply press enter or it gives you a list of options how you want the hard drive formatted.  And it is free.

DBAN as it's called (Derik's Boot and Nuke) is on the UBCD, along with about 7 others.
