Lets try this. I am assuming that you have no files that you need on the hard drive? First power down the computer. Remove power cord and wait 15 seconds. Then follow the steps below. This should do it.

1. Insert the DVD into the DVD drive.
2. On the disk selection screen, press SHIFT+F10. A Command Prompt window opens.
3. Type diskpart, and then press ENTER to open the diskpart tool.
4. Type list disk, and then press ENTER. A list of available hard disks is displayed.
5. Type sel disk number, and then press ENTER. number is the number of the hard disk that you want to clean. The hard disk is now selected.
6. Type det disk, and then press ENTER. A list of partitions on the hard disk is displayed. Use this information to verify that the correct disk is selected.
7. Make sure that the disk does not contain required data, type clean all, and then press ENTER to clean the disk. All the partitions and all the data on the disk is permanently removed.
8. Type exit, and then press ENTER to close the diskpart tool.
9. Close the Command Prompt window.
10. Click the Refresh button to update the disk selection screen. This step lists the disk.
11. Run Windows Vista Setup to perform a clean installation of Windows Vista.

Yo, Welcome to TSF, I'm just curious, have you tried deleting the partion and then create a new one then reformat it again, Since you mention that on the installation disk you can go to the part where you can format it right? Then tell me if the installation continue. BTW what is the specs of your computer?
