I needed to reinstall window on my computer. I had a partition for each OS. When I used my built in recovery system, the "Grub Rescue" popped up saying "error:no such partition" I can't get past this screen. Any suggestions?

I have an Asus x53s and I used the built in Asus recovery. In the options, I chose format whole disk with 2 partitions. I don't have the Ubuntu partition any more. Any suggestions?

I do not have a Windows CD available.

you could take supergrub - download here and burn it on CD or install it on usb-stick ... supergrubdisk.org –  dschinn1001 Sep 19 '13 at 14:50
