    This may be of help to you : Follow Me -->
    Also since the grub bootloader made itself default, once you delete the Ubuntu installation that would leave you with the grub rescue prompt as the boot files wasn't available anymore. If your system has a legacy bios then you could of loaded the windows setup then do a fixmbr and fixboot with cmd from the advanced menu or a startup repair for an UEFI setup.
