Windows 7: Dual-Boot Issue

Dual-Boot Issue

Sorry if this is the wrong section...
I have win7, and dual-boot it with ubuntu. It was great and all, but I had no need for it. So heres the part where I'm screw up... Instead of properly uninstalling ubuntu, I delete the partition. And now I'm stuck with ubuntu as a boot option. I tried msconfig, because I removed GRUB. And it still doesn't work. Any ideas?

just toss in the win 7 disk and run a startup repair.
Startup Repair
If it can locate the windows installation it should be able to get it booting right again.

Windows still works, Ubuntu is still there as an option and I tried that. Nothing I tried has worked to get rid of it.

Are you using Windows boot manager, configured with EasyBCD?

If so, delete Linux listing on Edit OS Menu tab.

If you were dual booting using GRUB, then Win7 would not boot after removing GRUB.
