I decided to get rid of the Fedora installation on my hard drive by deleting the partitions and extending my windows partition. To repair the boot loader I used a Windows recovery disc and command prompt and ran bootrec.exe /fixmbr. My problem is that the GRUB bootloader still persists giving me the option to boot into my non-existent Fedora partition. Any ideas on removing it?

Update: Removing Fedora using EasyBCD fixed the problem.


It seems like that's something that you should be able to accomplish using EasyBCD (free for non-commercial use) to modify the bootloader. According to this post looking to do a similar thing, writing a new MBR using EasyBCD worked in Windows 7, so the equivalent thing should work today.
