Default Startup And Partition Problems

Hey.
Well, i'm having problems booting up my system after i deleted two partitions off my hard drive. In it's original state, the hard drive had:
  • Windows Partition (NTFS)
  • Partition With My PersonalFfiles (NTFS)
  • Linux Kubuntu Partition (EXT3)
  • Swap Space Partition For Kubuntu (Forgot )

Now, after i deleted my Linux Kubuntu partition and the swap space partition to clear up some space on my hard drive, i had problems booting into my Windows. My computer simply won't boot up, i know that it's something to do with the boot loader but i don't know how to fix it.
Any ideas anyone ?

Find Doc Brown and ask to borrow the Delorean?

You changed the hard drive, but not the MBR(Master boot record) You will need to reformat.

Is there any way to change the master boot record ? I hope that formatting is only the last resort.

You need to run Recovery Console and fix your MBR, here is a link to Microsoft KB article

Follow what Deathstar posted.

All you need to do is insert a Windows CD, enter the recovery console (by pressing "R"), and do FIXBOOT, and FIXMBR.
