How to remove Ubuntu and put Windows back on?

I have installed ubuntu netbook edition via a bootable-USB and upgraded ubuntu to 11.04 via network connection. I want to uninstall ubuntu and restore windows 7 starter but I cannot find the partition. Have I inadvertently deleted the partition? I remember creating one before installing ubuntu but I cannot seem to remember how I did so. How do I go about uninstalling it? I have windows 7 starter on a CD - would it be usable if I created a botable USB with windows starter and restore my netbook?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Boot to the install CD. You can ten in the partitioner delete all of your partitions and create an NEW one for Ubuntu. A recovery CD may not work unless you create a blank NTFS partition in the beginning of the drive with gparted(See software center). If it is an install CD, easy.
