Question about Computers & Internet
If you are trying to boot to a start up disk then you may need to check your bios settings to make sure that the drive you are trying to boot from is 1st in the order. I dont know what computer you have so I can't tell you how to get into your bois but you can try the delete key when the computer boots or may an ALT key. You may even see a quick message on how to get into the setup when your computer boots up.
(NOTE: Use caution when modifying your Bios settings.)

The system is trying to boot from the C drive i,e, the HDD, you need to continue after formatting from the CD/DVD.
Presumable it initially booted from the disk and you went through the procedure wizard of telling the computer to install a fresh copy of the operating system deleting any existing operating systems, and you didn't ask it to partition the disk and retain the OS that was originally on the HDD.
After formatting it should continue to install the OS on the drive you specified from the CD/DVD disk.
Start again you have nothing to lose as the HDD is now formatted and all previous information is lost, but this time read the screens that come up carefully.
One final point you did put the disk in then power up the computer didn't you????? not put the disk in and try and re install.
The computer has to be booted from the disk.
