Default an`t format my computer?

Since recently, a problem started showing on my computer - blue screen. I have a Vista. I followed the formatting instruction on the net, and inserted the Windows drive I got from the seller. During the installation, there was no option FORMAT, so the old windows was collected into a folder WINDOWS.OLD. No format was done cause all the files exist still in this format. This folder can not be deleted. I tried to format separately C drive (I have only C and E (recovery) partitions), and it is not allowed cause the windows is there.

I will be very grateful if you tell me how to solve this and finally format my computer?

Can I create a new partition, install Windows there and format C?? To do this I should shrink C and create a new partition.

Thank you very much
