Need to fix Windows MBR without using a CD

I have a laptop which was Linux/Windows 7 dual-boot. I need to get rid of the Linux partition so that it only boots into windows.

I know how to do this if I have the Windows 7 CD(which I do). But this laptop does not come with a CD drive.

Is there anyway to do this without using the CD?

Boot the computer from a USB stick (which it supports unless it's more than 10 years old) that you can make very very easily by:

  1. Downloading the MS Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool.
  2. Downloading an ISO of the Windows 7 version which you are already the owner of (official links here).
  3. Running the tool and pointing it at the ISO and the USB stick.
