Boot with Ubuntu LiveCD. Then use gparted in System -> Administration and delete all the partitions on your harddrive. You probably have to unmount the swap partition first before you can delete it. Then, create a partition, /dev/sda1, that takes up the whole harddrive and format it to ntfs filesystem. Now, reboot with the windows CD in the drive and it should pick up the harddrive.
