I had both windows 7 with UBUNTU installed on my laptop but long time ago, I tried to uninstall UBUNTU (I am not sure if I did it right!). I find this GNU GRUB menu really annoying now that I only want to boot to windows. How do I get rid of it? This other question which seemed related didn't answer my question, and I have no windows boot disk.
