    That's a Linux boot loader, not a Windows boot loader. Sounds to me as if
    you have an incompletely deleted/formatted Linux partition hanging around
    that needs to be gotten rid of.

    Hi Mahinda--

    It's as Richard Harper says--

    Get rid of your Linux boot. However, drilling into your problem pratically
    while Richard Harper correctly tells you to format Linux, you may not be
    able to if you can't boot to either it or Windows to format Linux on some
    drive or the one you want to work.

    You have two choices and can do it easily with them.

    1) You can use Startup Repair from the Vista DVD and choose the command
    prompt and use Diskpart to format the drive.
    If you don't have a Vista DVD, no problem, simply download the .iso from
    this link and burn a Startup Repair Disk.

    Download Vista Repair Disk

    The menu you access from the Startup Repair Disk or the Vista DVD if you
    have one looks like this:

    Or a very handy tool to use that I've found will add partitions, reduce the
    size of partitions or format your drive or box within literally seconds is a
    Live Disc from Linux Gnu called G-Parted. You can download the .iso for it
    and burn it from this link. It is a very powerful tool, more capable than
    Vista/Window 7's Disk Management tool or Diskpart in those OS's because it
    can do more things and it can do them much faster, and it's free. If you're
    not used to Linux, you'll find the interface a bit daunting, because it's
    difficult to see, and there are many options couched in Linux terms, but
    it's still easy enough to use to format. All you do is put the live disk in
    once you've burned and it will find all your drives and you can right click
    the one you want to format.

    G-Parted (a Diskmanagement Tool From Linux that does a number of things that
    Diskmanagement in Vista and Windows 7 Can't Do)

    Good luck,
