Fedora is off topic here. Please ask on Unix.SE. – David Foerster Feb 8 at 21:52

You have corrupted the windows MBR.You have deleted the Ubuntu partition and configuration files necessary for Grub 2 to boot.Now to Boot into windows you need to repair the MBR. It means if you have windows installation disk boot from it.

Choose repair windows

Open cmd and type bootrec.exe/fixmbr

And bootrec.exe/fixboot

finally bootrec.exe/rebuildmbr(only if bootrec.exe/fixmbr fails)

you can refer this

Do a chkdsk at last for fixing disk errors.

Reboot and done.
