Its looking for the command in the wrong location cause its expecting to use the floppy drive hence it asking for A:

So you will need to edit the bat / cmd file that it runs from so it looks on the CD instead

you would have to edit the bat/cmd file that you run that is on the CD, which in turn starts the exe that is formating the HDD. So ask your friend to edit the file in question for you so it uses the CD driver letter and not A:
