I have accidentally deleted and formatted my linux partition and now my computer wont even start windows (multiboot). When I start my pc it shows error:no such partition and it enters rescue mode. It doesn't know any commands because i deleted the system, and when i try to boot windows partition from there it says unknown filesystem. I tried booting from usb but it ignores it for some reason although I have usb as number one boot option. I don't have any windows boot cd's or something. What can I do to at least boot windows again?

You need to reinstall a bootloader. In your case, I would use a MS Windows boot media and repair the existing installation. Since you are writing that you don't a windows boot CD, I recommend downloading the Windows ISO and create a bootable USB drive. All you need is a valid COA (serial), a USB drive (4GB or larger), and another computer that you can use to download and create the bootable USB pendrive.
