    Ok, so I am trying to get rid of the Grub loader from my laptop. I deleted my Linux partition, Grub is still there and I can't access Windows at all. I know the easiest way to fix this is by repairing my computer by using a windows recovery cd but I don't have one.

    Is there a way to do this without the cd Or can I download an ISO somewhere?

    Try this site. It downloads an .iso file. The site actually supplies a torrent site so you have to use a torrent program to do the actual download.

    Ok, so I know this thread is almost a year old, but just in case someone needs the info, you can boot to windows 7 from the grub prompt by entering the following commands:

    grub> rootnoverify (hd0,0)

    grub> makeactive

    grub> chainloader +1

    grub> boot

    If your Windows 7 is not the first OS on the harddrive, or if it's on a second harddrive, this won't work.
    Go to this website for more information about booting from grub:
