Is that exactly what it says in the BIOS?? diskette, hard drive, cd??
Alot of times it will have IDE0, IDE1, and so on. Make sure that there is no option for "boot other device" or something along those lines. If there is, disable it.
On the note of the format issue....I personally dont use anything but Windows to do the formatting of my drive. What windows are you running?
