Question bios and boot menu and keys disappeared and system goes to gnu grub rescue mode

I had installed redhat 6 with windows 7 and by foolish mistake deleted the partition on which redhat 6 was present.
im currently using Lenovo Z560 idea pad
now at the start there are no keys displayed for BIOS and boot menu
neither will it go to the above menus I have tried each and every combination but it wont go to the respective menus, instead it goes to the grub rescue screen. and just wont quit the screen. the windows 7 partition is ok there is no problem with it.

im a newb to Linux help required....

If you deleted the partition with Red Hat which contained almost all the Grub bootloader files, there is no reason to expect it to boot. Also, you would obviously not see the Grub boot menu as you deleted it.

now at the start there are no keys displayed for BIOS and boot menu
BIOS options would be totally unrelated and you don't see the boot menu because you deleted it.
You indicate the windows 7 partition is OK, does that mean you can boot it? or have you viewed the partition from outside?
I'm not really understanding what you have here?
