I had Windows 7 and Linux on a RAID0 disk- I deleted Linux, now when I boot I cannot get into Windows 7. I just get a grub error.

If I try and use the Grub Repair tool and put that on a USB stick to boot from, it says "BOOTMGR is missing"

If I boot the Win 7 CD and then go to do a repair it says "This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of Windows you are trying to repair"- although it is the same :s

How can I remove grub to boot windows normally??

GPT or MBR based disk/system? – 0xC0000022L Feb 16 '13 at 3:34
"... although it is the same" - Are you sure? Check whether you have a Win7 DVD and had Win7 SP1 installed. – Karan Feb 16 '13 at 18:36

I had a similar problem and was able to solve it by booting into the Windows recovery CD and running the following commands from a command prompt.

bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot

I previously wrote a more detailed blog post about what worked for me as well.
