The Windows installer will format the second partition (where you install Windows on) as NTFS.

You cannot install two operating systems on the same partition. And if you change the file system, your Linux installation is lost.

Its ok with me if the linux is erased from the drive. But i dont know how to install another operating system on the same partition as Linux is in LVM format and Vista needs NTFS format to be installed.

The vista installer will do it - just delete all existing partitions and it will create a new one.
