I think your windows Vista was installed on a partition other than C: drive, thats why you were able to format it. Since the boot loader information is stored on C: drive, I don't think you'll face any problem while restarting your system. The only problem would be you'll not be able to boot into Vista as you have formatted the partition but the Vista boot loader will still show its entry at startup.

If you don't want to take any chance, then use "Vista Boot Pro" and re-install Vista boot loader. Its very easy.

i installed xp in c drive. And i installed vista on F drive. And when i boot into vista it is showing F: drive as C:

and what is the way to remove the boot loader from start up, and make windows xp to boot like before.
