What "wizard" deleted your System partition? Is this the 100mb System Reserved partition?

You can attempt to recover the partition using the Partition Wizard boot disk linked above, following these steps: Partition Wizard Partition Recovery Wizard Video Help.

Once it recovers partition if it won't start make sure it is still marked Active and run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

If partition will not recover, then Mark Win7 Partition Active and run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
