So do you still have Repair My Computer link on F8 Advanced Boot Options?

This is not rewritten without doing the full steps I gave you above.

Thanks for the reply, the computer is booting now to W7 directly, but i still can not delete the Ubuntu partition, I think what i did was just removing the GRUB partition for Ubuntu not uninstalling it

Do you have 2 threads for the same issue?
Can not delete Ubuntu partition after uninstalling Ubuntu

Multiple threads can cause confusion and waste time of those trying to help you...

What do you mean you cannot delete Ubuntu partition? Did you try to delete it in Disk Mgmt? What is the error? Post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Help Forums

I also asked you if you have Repair My Computer on F8 menu at boot? Please answer the question. It normally is not rewritten there unless you do the full Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times and not dated XP-era bootrec commands that are only one of dozens of fixes automated in Startup Repair.

I think you're going to need to use the Ubuntu install partition manager to delete the Linux partitions. I've had issues like this and, for some reason, windows partition managers don't like messing with Linux partitions at all. Anyhow, that's what works for me at times like this.
