What download? What reformat?

This sounds like you a trying to INSTALL a copy of Windows on the computer.
It also sounds like you may have a hard disk problem or even a CPU overheating problem. If the Windows install offers to do a hard disk scan at the start of the install I would take that option.

Good Luck
