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

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.

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.
