Problems when trying to boot windows 2k8 server and deleting windows 7

Hi , i need urgent help , here what happens:
I have a server PC on which was installed windows 7 first then on another partition I installed the windows 2008 server , when i boot i usually got 2 options to select.
Now the problem is that i don't want windows 7 partition so i tried to format it from windows 2008 , I could not , so I started with a Windows 2008 DVD and deleted the windows 7 partition successfully . Now when I restarted , it gives a message that there is no operating system at all?
what to do? I am pretty sure that the windows 2008 partition is still existing, i can either see it files through cmd.
how can I fix this , specially that it is the main DC in my company.please help

You did this on the main DC of your company? That could get you terminated in many places.

I'm not sure if it exists for a server OS, but if there is a repair method, such as a start up repair from booting the disc, I would try that.

In fact i solved the issue by recreating the Boot folder again by following these steps:
bootmgr not found. bootrec /rebuildbcd and /fixboot give 'Element not found" error
