Windows 7: Laptop won't start up after deleting Ubuntu partition

Click Delete Partition to delete the extended Logical partition Free Space and make it Primary Unallocated Space.

Then extend C into the space: Partition or Volume - Extend

When I try to delete partition it says there is not enough space to do so. Makes no sense to me. Any more suggestions?

Boot free Partition Wizard bootable CD which will extend a Primary partition into Logical Free Space and vice versa.

I'd also delete the empty 2gb partition on right end as well.

Rightclick on C to Resize, drag right grey border to right to take up the free space, click OK, Apply.

I'd then rightclick on C to Check File System as Disk Mgmt is behaving dysfunctionally.

Okay well I'll have to go another CD tomorrow then. I'm still holding out for something else I can do tonight before I go to bed. If not, I'll try this.

I have the same problem as blueshift314 but I'm stuck as GRUB RESCUE and do not know what to type at the prompt. I do have a windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit cd when the time is right. I am corresponding from another laptop and have them side by side.

To Remove Linux take look at this post:

Boot into Windows 7 DVD 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.

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.

But how do I get past GRUB RESCUE? What do I type or do?
