Have you got a linux cd? You could boot it and type fdisk -l to see disks and partitions choose the one that you deleted for example you'd get /dev/sda(or hda)
/dev/sda1
/dev/sda2
and you'd type fdisk /dev/sda and type m for help. Depending on the partition you deleted you can try to rewrite the table, I hope you only deleted patition table.

Do you have windows 7 install dvd? You could use it to automaticly fix/repair bootloader.
