    Fix Windows MBR?

    I tried ubuntu out earlier...but i would like to switch back to just windows only. After deleting hte ubuntu partion. I got a grub rescue screen. I decided to put linux back on the pc to get it to boot into windows. I can do this...however i would like to remove linux and go back to windows booting normally. I tried to boot from windows disc and the disc will not boot. I can only boot from flash drive for some reason? Never had a problem until i installed this.
