Hmm just so I have it right you cannot install 7 back on the drive you put the Linux OS on? Plus have you any data you need backed up? Because I reckon that you will need to complete wipe that drive using diskpart clean all or Partition Wizard - wipe and reformat it before you can do a proper install.

To reinstall this is a good way of doing that and gets the freshest ISO of the version of 7 that you had originally.

Let us know what you want to do and we can give you specific info on doing all that.
