    Are you performing/selecting a custom install or the upgrade install option? If you have a legal copy of windows and if you have a legal product key, then I suggest to change the boot order to boot from removable device in the BIOS and then select custom install when you reach that screen. In there it will allow you to select what drive to install it on...and to format that selected drive and perform a clean install.
