From DualBoot to SingleBoot

I recently went back from dual-booting linux and windows 7. When I installed Ubuntu I had it take over the Master Boot Record (MBR). To remove Ubuntu from the drive requires that the MBR gets replaced with the Windows 7 MBR. There are various ideas on how to do this online, but the way that worked for me was to boot off the Windows 7 DVD, go to recovery tools and command line. Then type bootsect /nt60 c: /mbr. I believe this is all I needed. I also did run bootsect /nt60 /ALL but I don't think this really did much since none of those drives were the bootable drives.
