Hello,

 

if you reformatted your disk with xp recovery media cd´s then XP is on this partition.

You had to create vista recovery dvd´s before restoring to XP factory conditions.

If you are in warranty may be call support to get vista recovery media.

 

Try press F11 at start up, then you´ll see what kind of os comes up.

 

Regards

Andreas
