Startup issues

So after accidentally deleting a partition w/ Linux, i get an error message every time i start my pc.
the message states:
"GRUB Loading Stage 1.5
GRUB Loading, Please wait...

if i put in the windows disk, go to repair, it doesn't recognize any OSes (of which there should be only one, Win7 x64)
repairing startup doesn't seem to work. If i open cmd, it can't find any directory other than the disks (X:\)
I've run out of ideas...
anyone have any suggestions?

AMD: Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2991 MHz

I've tried deleting the old one (can't do it)
repairing the old one (can't do it)
fixmbr says it worked,
fixboot says 'element not found'

programs like EasyBCD aren't helpful since i can't get into Windows to launch them.
