It appears that you are still using the boat loader in the Vista Partition to boot in Win 7.. Easy to sort out..

Boot from your Windows 7 DVD, and when prompted click on “Repair your Computer”. Select Install and then run “Start-up Repair”. This will recreate the boot manager in the windows 7 partition. You should then be able to format the windows Vista partition.

Hope that helps
