In the Windows start menu right click computer and click manage, in the left pane of the "Computer Management" window that opens click disk management and post a snip of that.

As a start, here are some tutorials to look through that may give you some ideas.


Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

How to Do a Clean Installation with Windows 7


If you can find someone that has a Windows 7 install disk that you can use, it doesn't have to be the exact same version, though it does have to be the same bit-rate (32-bit or 64-bit) you can use the info above to create an installer of your version and use the other 2 tutorials to do a clean install.

Just be advised the "Optimize" tutorial will over-write everything on the entire Hard Disk Drive (HDD) so make backups first of anything you don't want to lose.

Looks like you ran the installer from Vista and installed to another partition which got deleted and is now Unallocated Space.

This time I would boot the Win7 installer and make sure you install to the C partition. You can format it first using Custom>Drive options, even repartition if you want, or just highlight C partition and click install.
