This question already has an answer here:

I installed Ubuntu 12.04 in my laptop. Now I want to remove Ubuntu and I install Windows 7.

But when I restart my system after keeping Windows 7 DVD it is not booting.

What should I do to get rid of this problem?

I have tried to modify many options, but none of them had worked out?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

In case your system does not want to boot from a bootable CD/DVD this is the error of either the settings in your BIOS (did you select it as a boot device?) or it's a faulty disc. I think this has nothing to do with Ubuntu, apart from that you installed that in the past. – gertvdijk Jul 15 '13 at 17:12
What are you calling 'alongside' is actually not alongside install. I consider it murder. – Danatela Jul 15 '13 at 17:16

You would have to install windows 7 first (So it can boot from MBR) Then Install ubuntu alongside windows. Wubi installer and I think there is a option to set a different partition to dual boot for ubuntu

@Jorav, if you want to help, read the question carefully. OP said he has problem that prevents system from booting using Windows 7 DVD. – Danatela Jul 15 '13 at 17:22
