- Add the Linux GRUB2 boot entry (Add New Entry menu)
- Choose “Install the Windows Vista/7 bootloader to the MBR” (Bootloader Setup menu)
- Then click “Write MBR” button (Bootloader Setup menu)
That’s it your bootloader will be shown again and if you want to use Windows 7 just choose “Windows 7″ and if you want to use Ubuntu then choose the “Linux GRUB” and then the GRUB bootloader will be shown.
