You will need to be a little more specific about what you have done and what you expected. If you had an operating system on the drive, it would be useful if you indicated which distribution of Linux you were using. Also, if you formatted the entire drive, you formatted the boot files which were on it and there is no way to boot and nothing to boot. The files are gone. A little clarification on what you did and what you are attempting to accomplish.

I bought an Acer with Linux preinstalled, I tried to install Windows 7 on a USB bootable partition but I could not choose because I could not click on next, so I tried to format disk 0 partition 1 including: system reserved, I think I deleted some files that I picture appears black with gnu grub version 0.97 634 lower / upper 523264k memory .......

If you reformatted disk 0, partition 1, you deleted your grub.cfg. What version of linux came on laptop. I would say that if it's using grub1 the Os is probably unsupported. I suggest i.stalling a newer version instead of worrying about the old.

You should be able to run just about any OS on that.
I prefer debian.

Windows most likely installed it's bootloader to usb.
Go to your boot menu & select the usb drive. Most likely f8 during boot will get you to boot menu.

You have to either try entering bios or bootmenu before grub loads.

Yes but windows us on usb, it has nothing to do with grub. When you installed windows to usb, how did you do it?
