Windows 7: Fix MBR

Fix MBR

I uninstalled Linux which I had dual booted with win 7, by deleting linux partition in windows. Now I would like to restore MBR to its original state, so that I could boot directly in to windows, without going through grub. I do not have win 7 disc. How do I fix MBR?

You can use the Startup Repair CD
Use the Rebuild BCD in this tutorial:

If you have not made your Startup Repair
System Repair Disc - Create
Do you have a mate with Windows 7 & CD/DVD RW Drive, how could burn one off.

Mark Windows 7 Active, then either use the Rebuild MBR function on Disk tab on Partition Wizard bootable CD, or boot the Repair CD linked by theog above to run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

First of all I thank you both for your replies. Your guidance helped solve the problem. I created the repair disc & ran startup repair. The startup repair did not detect any problem. So I went in to command prompt & the commands entered to rebuild BCD successfully fixed MBR. So, thank you once again especially for those screenshots posted & the useful links provided.
