use Gparted live CD to reformat the drive
windows can not see nor will it ever be able to read a NON Microsoft partition format ( fedora 16 LVM or ext4)
then reinstall the windows bootloader

see the microsoft web site for instructions on that


step 1
call Microsoft on the phone
and order a install dvd for win7
they will mail you one for free ( snail mail)

that is to reinstall the OS if a mistake is made

and you will need it to reinstall the windows bootloader
