Default Grub bootloader-How do I get rid of it?

I'm dual-booting Windows 7 and Mint Linux and I'm looking to get rid of Mint Linux. How do I get rid of GRUB? The repair startup option in the Windows 7 installation doesn't do anything.

I looked around and found this: http://episteme.arstechnica.com/eve/...m/254009228831

The only thing is that it's for Vista, does it work for 7 or do I have to go about it a different way?

Default Re: Grub bootloader-How do I get rid of it?

use fixboot or fixmbr from the system recovery options.

basically when you install grub you'll have made a boot partition where grub is installed...

at the moment your master boot record is pointing to grub.
if you just get rid of grub, then it'll point to a blank area of disk, (not good!).
