Asus Eee PC 1101HA Error 22

I have an Asus Eee PC 1101HA. I decided that I wanted to try out Linux, so I installed Linux via a flash drive. When I installed it, I thought everything was going ok, and it installed fine. Except when I booted back into windows to check my partitions, stuff had gone weird. My XP partition was now 140gb; I had a useless partition with 2 useless logical drives in it of 2 and 4 gb; and Linux was on a partition of just under 5gb. I didn't think this was a good system so I deleted the two logical drives and their partition, and I decided that I would re-install linux with a greater partition, so I deleted linux's partition also. I combined the leftover unallocated partitions using partition magic, and when I went to reboot this error came up:

GRUB Loading stage1.5.

GRUB loading, please wait...
Error 22

What I've gathered this to be from information on the internet is that my PC is searching for the linux partition that I deleted. But I don't know how to fix it, right now I just want to get back into windows, is there any way to set it to just boot into windows and not look for the partition?

The easiest way is plugging back the usb_drive and re-install linux. If you'd be more careful you can partition your harddrive perfectly during the linux installation

I did that just for the sake of getting windows back (I need it quite urgently for an assignment) but when I re-installed linux I just put the partition as being side by side, which ended up being 2.33gb... I'll re-install linux again at a less crucial time and see if I can get my partition larger.
