I previously uninstalled Fedora dual boot and now have the GNU Grub bootloader still hanging around. I have found instructions online on how to remove this but they all require the Windows 7 CD. I do not have one because I have a Thinkpad. Unfortunately, I cannot install Thinkpad's rescue and recovery without the original thinkpad BMGR bootloader installed. Are there any alternatives?

EDIT: After looking into this further, I believe I might need the Thinkpad bootloader rather than the one from a Windows 7 CD.

EDIT2: Ultimately, I had to restore to factory settings, but that resolved the issue.

Obtaining the Win7 DVD is not an issue, but the ThinkPad has a custom bootloader for Win7? Are you sure? –  Karan Jun 17 '13 at 3:09
    
Can you make that edit an answer and mark it accepted, so this question becomes "solved"? –  K.A Jan 3 at 23:33
