How to uninstall Ubuntu in a UMPC

A friend wants to sell her UMPC, witch has Windows Vista and Ubuntu. The system doesn't have a CD/DVD drive, so how do we remove Ubuntu and restore the mbr to a windows one?

You could boot it to USB, then install over the network. What is the model/brand? Perhaps somebody has already figured this out for you.

The manufacturer must have provided some kind of recovery system. Check that out to recover your old mbr.

The op said remove ubuntu, not install.
