Would love to help, but don't have a clue what you are talking about.

so i decided to boot it (format it)

Did you format your hard drive?

Were you trying to re-install your operating system?

If you are able to boot from your Windows CD/DVD, try doing so and deleting all partitions visible on your hard drive. Then proceed to reinstall windows as you normally would.
