In BIOS, make sure that USB drive is first in boot order, then insert windows 7 USB

Boot from the USB
Click Install Now
Accept License Agreement
When the option is displayed to select an installation type, click (Custom Advanced)
Click Drive Options
Select each drive/s click Delete (this will delete the existence of Ubuntu and Grub on the computer)
Click New
Click Apply
Click OK
Click Format and click Next to proceed with the installation

This process assumes you are trying to replace the OS, not dual boot.
