    When it comes down to reformatting your hard drive, if you do not know what to do, contact a tech who does. (there's nothing wrong with wanting our advice, but sometimes having someone come out to your home for a quick look will help). Maybe the person can show you what needs to be done, you pay a small fee for the advice, then do the expensive work yourself. No sense in ruining a good computer because of lack of knowledge.

    Good Luck

    Your C drive is HDD0, the second HD is HDD1, make sure it is partitioned before you do anything else.
