Not a lot of information to go on.

I'd assume that reformatting the Redhat partition also screwed up Grub so you've got no valid boot loader.
I'd try re-installing Redhat to the partition you formatted. It should re-install Grub at the end which, hopefully, woudf pick up your Windows 7 install as well and you're back to normal.

Oh! And welcome to Linux Questions!

Play Bonny!

If you want to kepp Redhat, then re-installing it will fix the problem.
If you don't want to keep Redhat, then you need to boot using Windows installation CD and run fixmbr. Here is a helpful link:

If this answers your question, then edit your original post and add [SOLVED] in the beginning of the title.
