    Friend, if you (read as installer) deleted partition you don’t have hope until and unless you use something special software available on net. Here is google search for you:

    http://www.google.co.in/search?hl=en&q=recover+erased+partition&spell=1

    Now to uninstall Linux (wonders why you want to do that)!
    1) Boot from Windows 9x / DOS cd / floopy
    2) Run fdisk and rmove NON-DOS Partitions
    3) Run (to restore DOS/Win MBR)
    fdisk /mbr
    4) Reboot System
    5) Proceed with windowz installation
