Default How to get rid of GRUB

I installed an 80GB HDD with Linux to work in sync with my 120GB Windows 7 & and 1TB HDD. I removed the 80 GB to temporarily use in my NAS. Now when I boot up my PC it says GRUB entering rescue mode. How can I get my PC to boot into Windows automatically and get rid of GRUB?

Use EasyBCD to overwrite the bootloader and restore it back to the Windows bootloader.

EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies

Just get the free version.

No it's not.

Scroll down and click "Register" for the free edition.

It will take you to a new page with an optional registration form. Just click the Download button without filling out the form and it will pop up the Save As window.
