I have new macbook laptop, and I installed Windows7 beside mac x operating systems. After that I deleted W7 and tried to install it again and unfortunately i deleted W7 and a part from Disk Utility.

Now the problem is when I try to install windows7 by using Boot camp assistance it gives me a message telling me "The startup up disk can not be partitioned or restored to a single partition, the startup disk must be formatted as a single mac OS extended 'Journaled' volume."

How can I do that, I am a new user to mac.

Regards

You've basically modified the partition map in such a way that Boot Camp can't resize the volume. Next time you feel the need to remove a Boot Camp partition, don't use Disk Utility, Boot Camp Assistant will do it for you cleanly.

Probably the best way to do this would be to backup your OS X partition using a tool like SuperDuper! or Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) to an external. Boot from the external and then completely format the drive to a single Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) volume. Then, restore the backup to the newly formatted drive, run Boot Camp Assistant to create a Boot Camp partition and install Windows.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
