Windows 7 and Linux Problem

I hope this is the right place to post this.

i just got windows 7 so i wanted to get rid of linux ubuntu. after alot of trying i only got to this point. i installed windows 7 over linux to delete linux and the reformated my other hard drive so that nothing was left. but the linux grub loader is still there, windows 7 should have over written it but it didn't.

now when i start i get this message.
GRUB loading.
error: no such disk
grub rescue>

but if i leave my Windows 7 install disk in i can boot my Windows 7, but thats the only way.

does anyone know how i can get rid of that stupid grub loader and replace it with the windows 7 loader?

Nevermind, i got it.

I just needed to change the boot sequence to my other hard drive so it didn't find the corrupt grub loader. Just in case somebody wanted to know.
