Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When you first start the CD it should ask language, keyboard, user, password and installation. If it doesn't, you've got bigger problems than the rescue CD can fix.
It has language set at English (US) which should be UK by the way but it asks me for keyboard but that is all. Please don't say anything about bigger problems, it sounds ominous... Is there any live chat on here we can talk through? That might be better for you to ask questions and stuff...
It isn't the windows boot manager, it is the grub boot manager that was installed along with windows that is corrupted ergo I need to get rid of the remaining files so the windows boot manager can take over again, unless you just got me to delete that?!

Windows does not install GRUB. Linux does. What you want to do after getting rid of linux is replace GRUB with BCD.
And you did not delete it, because it was apparently already missing per your post above.
