removed Windows, cannot log on

#1
Oops! I'm one of the newbiest people out there in the linux world and I accidentally removed Vista using Easybcd and did not have ubuntu configured properly (I was trying to get it going using Wubi). Trying to log into windows using safe mode and all other options brings me to the recovery partition, and trying to log into Ubuntu leaves me with a flashing message:

BootPart 2.60 Bootsector (c) 1993-2005 gilles Vollant BootPart
Loading new partition
Bootsector from C.H. Hochstatter

Am I hosed and need to reformat? Thanks.

Ahh, I never did get around to making one of these and completely forgot about it! OK, so now I can boot into Vista (recovered)...is everything absolutely normal again?

Yep. You can rename the entry (to get rid of the "recovered") in EasyBCD.
