You needed to make your Recovery Disks before installing Win7 as the Recovery partition is disabled when another OS is installed.

Since the Recovery partition is useless and you don't need anything else on the HD, it would be best to delete all of the partitions then create a new one for your install.

Boot DVD, Choose Custom install, then Drive Tools to delete all partitions, create New one(s) as you wish, then format before installing Win7 to first partition.
