✔ Best Answer
You cannot format the drive that your operating system is on from within the operating system.

You need to re install your OS from scratch and when it asks if you want to format the drive or install over the top, choose the format option

I believe that is exactly what the OP did, reinstalled from scratch. Since it was just installed, there would have been little to lose except maybe a half hour or so. (apparently edited the original question to indicate that it was resolved)

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You're probably right, but I'm confused by the "under advanced, clicked format" comment.
