    There should have been a boatload of warnings when you attempted an upgrade to a different bitness of Windows!
    Changing the bitness of Windows will automatically  format the drive anyhow.
     
    This is really the wrong forum for this question - you should repost in the Answers Windows 7 Installation forum here....

  • You cannot run Setup from the desktop and do what you are attempting.  You have to boot the computer with the dvd and install that way.
