Deleted Partition

Hey guys,
Today i was buying some used drives from a guy and the PC we were using to test the drives from had my main windows 7 install on it,,, being in a rush at the end testing the last drive he sold me i accidentally deleted the partition on my main drive,, i DID NOT format it,, im wondering if there is a way i can restore that partition and have it boot up again???
If so whats the best way to do it? is there a tutorial here on the site for this? i havent had a chance to check yet but will start a full search after i post this and hope that maybe someone will reply and or if i find what i need then i will just come back here and delete this post or update it as solved
Thanks
