Sounds like there's probably an extended partition still left in there.. Frankly I'd just install windows in the smaller partition, and then when in windows format the rest, and instsall my programs and stuff there.. It'll be simpler next time you want to reformat, just worry about windows, cause the rest wouldnt get formatted
