I am using Windows 7 and it's installed on Local Disk C. I also installed Linux on another Local Disk. Because of the lack of storage, I formatted the local disk of Linux and merged the space with C.

Now, when I turn on the computer, it just restarts continuously.

Is there a way to solve it?

Note that the Windows files exist on the hard drive, its label is Local disk (G).

When you formatted your Linux system disk you broke Grub. You will need to reinstall the Windows 7 bootloader to resolve this problem. –  Ramhound Sep 13 '13 at 15:42

This error may be due to some issues with the botloader. To fix boot loader you may try this.

Grab a Windows recovery media or installation CD and boot from it.On the installation media you will see an option to repair your computer.Click "Repair your computer" and you can Open the Command Prompt, then type

bootrec /fixmbr

into the Command Prompt and then reboot your system.
