While trying to set up a dual-boot for windows 7 and ubuntu on my laptop, I accidentally reformatted a 350gb partition of my hard drive to the swap type in ubuntu. Now on windows, I cannot access this part of the hard drive, which I need to do. The hard drive shows up in the device manager, but it only shows up the 100gb main partition. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What is going to be the easiest way to do this since its on a laptop and only has an OEM license?

Do you have a windows disk? if not download a copy from the internet and burn it to a disk. There is a windows key on the underside of your laptop use that to re register after formating the disk
