Goes right into Linux..Deleted Linux parition.....Now I get bootmgr missing. Tried all kinds of fixes that I could find to do...nothing. So I can not start windows. Can I do a custom install from DVD so it recognizes my installed windows 7. And will it activate. I know I can do a clean install from xp, but again can I do I do a clean install from 7. Thanks

Yes you can, it will not be a problem. You may want to do a clean install, or you will surely have problems. You can use the upgrade dvd, for the clean install.
The upgrade DVD actually works very much like the full retail. Read some of the tutorials that we have on the subject. Anything that you do shoud be done after you make a system image of what you have now.
