Install Boot loader from running OS

Hi

I have Win7 and Linux as dual-boot and is working fine without any problem. Now i want to remove Linux and use Win7 as lone OS. I want to load Win7 boot loader from running Win7 OS (not through startup-repair bootrec.exe) and then want to delete linux partitions. How can i do?

Pls advise,
TIA
Prvn

You might be able to run the bootsect commands from EasyBCD 2.0 "Useful Utilities" Command Line from within Win7, with the DVD or Repair CD in the drive.
EasyBCD 2.0.2 - NeoSmart Technologies

But if not you'll have to run it from the DVD/Repair CD Command Line as shown in tutorial.

You don't need the 7 dvd - just easybcd will be fine.
