Windows not booting. \Boot\BCD error
First time here and I got a problem with my ProBook.
I wanted to try the new Ubuntu so I dualbooted it and Windows 7.
Something was not right so I decided to remove Ubuntu and now Windows fail to start...
My ProBook do not have a CD-ROM so I can not insert the Windows CD and fix it.
Can I do it with a USB? If so, how?
Thanks for all answers and ask if any questions!

Boot into Windows 7 DVD/flash stick installer's System Recovery Options or Windows 7 System Repair Disk to Mark Windows 7 or it's 100mb System Reserved Partition (preferred if you have it) Active.
The installer ISO and tool to write to stick is in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start
Then run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times until Windows 7 starts and it's boot partition holds the System Active flags.
If this fails when System Reserved partition is marked Active, move the Active flag to Windows 7 partition itself and then try the 3 repairs again.
Be aware that sometimes GRUB can corrupt Windows 7 beyond repair when on the same HD. If problems persist I would delete it completely and then for any future Linux Dual Boots use separate HD's booted only via BIOS, or Dual Boot - Windows 7 and Linux - Windows 7 Forums.
If all else fails it may be necessary to wipe the boot sector of interfering code using Diskpart Clean Command before Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which steps are same for retail. The HP factory preinstall is one of the worst possible installs you can have, so you'd be going from worst to best if you stick with the tools and methods in the tutorial.
