Sounds like you started to reformat your hard drive (FAT 32 Formatter) when you clicked "Initialize Drive". Computers are fast, and it had started its job before you powered off.

I suspect the data on that drive is "gone", and you will need to do a fresh install.

If you have Recovery disk, reinstall windows. Else if its under warranty call Acer, they should be able to send you the Disk (don’t tell them, you used FAT 32 FORMATER).

If they wanted to charge you for the back disk, just download it from internet. Do a google search by entering: Acer asphire vista recovery disk ( Or what ever the model is).
