The partitions showing are...
/dev/sda1 ext4 28gb
/dev/sda2 extended 1.6gb
/dev/sda5 linuxswap 1.6gb
So, it looks like it overwrote the Windows Recovery when I installed Linux Does that mean that even with the recovery disks I won't be able to install Windows?
If not, I may have an XP or spare Windows 7 installation disk around, would those work?
sudo swapoff -a

I was able to delete the remaining partitions and use the recovery cd, everything went fine until I rebooted, whereupon it gives me the error,
"Error: unknown filesystem."
