well grub is the linux bootloader

It is not the Microsoft bootloader

you did make a "rescue " disk of windows 7 ( like you were instructed to on the very first boot of windows7
or do you have a real Windows 7 install dvd

reboot with the rescue dvd you made ( or the install dvd )
and fix the mbr

--- install dvd ---

you can try to reinstall grub
but there is no guarantee it will work
you have a ubuntu disk
see:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=224351

seeing as you deleted the ubuntu partition

your best bet is to call Microsoft on the phone
and have them mail you a install dvd
"windows 7 service pack 1 "
