Windows 7: Deleting Ubuntu 9.04 Partition

Deleting Ubuntu 9.04 Partition

Ok, for a while now, I've been dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.04. However, now I just want to have Windows 7 and get rid of Ubuntu. How do I get rid of the partition while making sure Windows 7 will boot up normally? I know you have to go into Disk Management, delete the Ubuntu partitions and then extend the Windows 7 partition so that it takes up the entire hard drive again. After that, with the GRUB boot loader from Ubuntu gone, how do I make sure that Windows 7 will boot normally? I heard you can insert the Windows 7 Installation DVD and choose to repair your computer and then choose Startup Repair. However, could someone please confirm this? I don't want to end up doing a full install of Windows 7 again.

I was afraid of this...it didn't work, meaning I can no longer boot into Windows 7. When I try to boot up, it says:

GRUB Loading Stage 1.5

GRUB Loading, Please wait...
ERROR 22

Luckily, I backed up all my files, so I can just do a clean reinstall. I don't like doing Repair Installations.

A startup repair with your 7 disc didn't work? Try it again before you do a clean install

I've tried it 5 times I think. It doesn't detect a problem. Even my brother down at Microsoft HQ doesn't know what's happening.

I can't even boot into Windows 7 anymore, so I can't do this. Besides, I've already deleted and extended the partitions.

Where did you have GRUB installed? When I installed Ubuntu on a separate partition I installed GRUB also on that partition not on my primary OS partition and like that I can delete Ubuntu partition anytime without problems.
