    Hi Andy,


    As you have formatted drive C, all data including Windows Vista is removed. Therefore, you cannot boot into the system and no operating system can be detected on the computer.


    Is your computer an OEM one? If so, you can contact your computer manufacturer to restore the system to ints factory settings to restore Windows Vista. Otherwise, you cannot restore your system and you have to reinstall Windows Vista.


    Hope it helps.
