I've formated partition to empty - only erased information that partition is NTFS.

Partition data haven't been changed. So i think only little change to partition table is required.

How can i recover it?

Try TestDisk.

TestDisk is powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.

To restore the bootsector, boot your PC with Win 7 installation DVD, choose "Repair your computer", choose command prompt and type in "bootsect /nt60 SYS" or "bootsect /nt60 C:/" if you have your Windows installed on C: partition. Then restart. – tb0171 Jul 21 '11 at 16:29
And if i have windows vista? – kravemir Jul 21 '11 at 16:31
I think the procedure is the same, but the tool is called "Bootrec.exe". Try it. – tb0171 Jul 21 '11 at 16:36
