    When you deleted the partition, did you delete the Bootcamp partition using Bootcamp Assistant?
    Or did you use Disk Utility?
    I am guessing you used Disk Utility

    My recommendation...

    Clone your current OSX partition using Carbon Copy Cloner to an extern HDD
    Boot from the Clone
    Erase your internal drive using Disk Utility
    Restore your clone to the internal HDD
    Boot from the internal HDD
    Run Bootcamp Assistant again
