    You need to fix the the mbr. Boot using your Windows CD and use the recovery console to fixmbr.

    Have a look at this link:

    I formatted the entire drive... the problem was solved already. the cause of that problem is I installed the linux bootloader to MBR. I just boot the PC using a boot CD the run the command "fdisk/mbr" then reboot the PC.

    Yes. Easier would be to have two partitions. Install Windows first on one partition, and then install Linux on the other. The Linux install will setup the bootloader that will allow you to choose which you want to boot.
