Default Unable to boot computer

A few years back I set up Windows 7 and Linux Q4OS dual boot. Today I inadvertently deleted the Linux partitions. Windows partition remained intact and was working fine. I switched off the computer later in the day and now I am unable to boot the computer. I get the following message:

"error: no Such Partition
entering Rescue Mode...
grub Rescue>"

I can restore my last system image but I prefer to recover the Windows system as it is because I downloaded some very important data using Windows 7, just yesterday. What is the best way I can recover Windows.

I have no installation CD but I have a Windows 7 repair disk, if it helps.

The issue appears as the MBR points to the Grub menu in your Linux partition that has been deleted.

You will need to fix the MBR to point back to the Windows partition, without the need to reinstall Windows.

Try the commands stated on this page if your Windows 7 repair disk supports them.
