I have deleted elementaryOS from Windows Disk Management and now I can’t boot into Windows anymore and Linux is gone.

Getting grub error when booting..

I’ve still got a live elementary USB I can boot to, can I create a partition/resize my windows disk from here, then reinstall elementary and remove in the correct manner? Or can I just remove the grub boot loader from here?

Would like to keep the existing Windows data ideally..
