Need help setting primary partition

alright..

on my other computer I made a new partition using gparted so i can install ubuntu.. i accidently made it my "primary partition".. and when i boot my computer it says no OS found (obviously..) I'm trying to get into windows 7 but i need to set my other partition as primary.. how do i do this? (I can't find the option in gparted.. the only reason my new partition was set as primary is because it asked me would i like to set as primary when i formatted or made it.. i think)

I just reformatted lol.. the only recovery discs I have is the whole spammage packed recovery disc that I got w/ my laptop.. and the other OS disc i have is my windows 7 beta.. so i just started clean again w/ windows 7

I tried going into recovery mode or w/e when the computer started up (supposedly had a separate partition that came pre-'done' w/ the laptop made specifically for recovery)... but it wouldnt even boot into that
