as i try install win 7 after this stat so you can guess that there is a swap partition on my hard.
So
After the problem happened the hard view list at installing win7 progress was:
some giga partition (win7 and xp partition i guess ) then swap partition then the whole of other partition.
then after that i decided yesterday to reinstall a new win7 on the first partition
maybe be now i can't do Startup repair

I hope make my topic more clear ,, But excuse my If anyone can but his solution clear as i learn ways to do ,not remember ways to do
Thanks for eveyone

The best way for you to proceed is to start Win7 back up.

When you delete the 100mb System Reserved boot partition you need to take two steps to start Win7 up again:

First you need to mark Win7 partition Active: Boot Win7 DVD, press Shift F10 at first screen to open a Command Line, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK # (replace # with the DISK number for Windows 7 DISK)
LIST PARTITION
SELECT PARTITION # (replace # with the number for the Win7 partition, judging by size and position)
ACTIVE
EXIT

Next boot back into Win7 DVD, select Repair My Computer on second screen, click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots until Win7 starts up. Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

You can also copy out your files with the Win7 DVD using this method: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

If you deleted the 100mb System Reserved image then the boot files were removed for Windows 7. They need to be restored.

I will help you determine which is the correct Partition to choose to mark Active.

Choose the Win7 disk from the LIST DISK command results. There may only be one, probably DISK0.

If so, type: SELECT DISK 0

then: DETAIL DISK

Post back the details for Volumes.

What makes you think you deleted the 100mb System Reserved partition? It appears to be Partition 1

Type: SELECT PARTITION 1
DETAIL PARTITION
report back details

Then: SELECT PARTITION 0
DETAIL PARTITION
report back details

Then: SELECT PARTITION 3
DETAIL PARTITION
report back details

Yes, there is an Active System Reserved boot partition there for WIn7 which is Partition 1.

But Which partition contains Win7? The only ones listed which have enough size both report no volume.

What exactly did you delete, and how?

You were installing WIn7 while files were still on the hard drive? Do you need these files now? I don't think they are there, but you can browse for them this way: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

when i tried to install win 7 again i delete the system reserved partition from DVD at booting for installation then the hard list divided into these sections:
a partition its size about 50 -60 or more and i guess that is the previous win xp and 7
a partition called swap for previous linux i installed in my pc.
a partition its size i guess the all of my rest space of hard.
that only , and all was called unallocated except the swap.
what you understand from the previous details i write is that mean there is no exiting win 7 !!
Or there is no like what i say now !!
i don't know what tis mean!!
that all what i did !!

I thought you have files you need to rescue.

If not, Then I think you should wipe the HD and clean install Win7 by booting the DVD. It is important to wipe any GRUB off the HD as it will corrupt Win7:

First wipe the HD following these steps using DISKPART: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Then clean install Win7 by booting DVD: Clean Install Windows 7
