How do I boot into Windows from the GRUB rescue menu after deleting the bootloader config?

My friend had his system dual-booting Ubuntu and Windows 7. As he wanted more space to store data in Windows, he foolishly just deleted the partition. Yeah, I knew that by deleting Ubuntu partition he would lose the Grub config/loader that has the data for booting the OS and I warned him long before. Basically I am looking for someone to please tell me if there is any way to boot into Windows?

I used a Windows Vista reinstall disc to open a command prompt and tried the following:

bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot

Then rebooted the system. Still no luck.

Please help me!
