Fatal Error 0xEE00000B after trying to reinstall windows

Hi. Today i have tried to install a fresh windows, but i forgot that my drive was encrypted using mcafee. After the process for installing windows started, i got to the point "format the disk" but..i couldn't do it because it would not let me to. I removed the windows disk trying to log in to windows, but now all that i see is a black screen with the following message: McAfee Endpoint Encryption

Fatal Error:  [0xEE00000B] EPEi_system_policy

What can i do?

What error do you get when you try to format the drive? Usually you should be able to wipe the disk and install a fresh OS on it even if MDE is activated. It is an ordinary process if you need to rebuild a PC without having to collect any residing data. You could try to verify that BIOS/UEFI settings like Secure Boot does not interfere the format.

This is what I found in regards to that error:

May be you could try rebuilding the MDE PBFS too:
