Removed dual boot now windows isn't booting

I have a Toshiba satellite laptop running Windows 7 ultimate alongside Linux Mint 17.2 dual boot. Dual booting was removed now I am only getting grub rescue> on boot. Windows 7 installation removable drive is starting but it will not allow upgrade neither will it allow me to custom install. It doesn't matter to me if I must clean install or fix to dual boot again. I've redownloaded win7 installation and attempted a fresh clean install. It shows two drives. They are both GPT so I cannot format via installing drivers with the installation media. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like you made a mistake deleting the double boot. Have a look at this:
