I have a Dell Studio 15 that dual boots Windows 7 and Ubuntu. All Windows and Ubuntu admin files (Documents, Videos etc..) are in a separate partition I use for a bridge.

If I can just remove the partition Ubuntu utilizes and all Admin files on the separate partition, will Windows automatically boot? Will I have to change bios settings because grub is no longer there?

No you will need to run startup repair with a windows 7 disk.

If you run into a problem with using startup repair (I have when I was triple booting), you can also give "Super Grub" a try to repair the the startup and remove grub.
