You should not need to format your drive if you have a Recovery Disc. If you have saved you E-Mail and Docs just put the recovery disc in computer and restart with it. Then choose to reinstall from CD

I don`t know if the Mesh recovery disc is similar to my Evesham disc for ME.

If it is, then you should first boot from this CD. You will then be presented with 4 options, number 4 being:
"Quick restore system - Quick format--
This option will format the hard disc and install a new operating system. All personal data will be lost"

Don`t forget, you will need the drivers for your other components; such as modem, graphics card, sound card, etc: - Check you have them first.

You may initially need go into your bios set-up to ensure that the boot sequence is set for CDROM as the first boot device.

If it's a restore disc Drivers will be in a Hidden Parttition on on the CD
