I installed Windows 7 and then Ubuntu 12.10 on my laptop. After installing, when I restart, GRUB didn't load. Instead, it straight away went to Windows booting as if there's Only windows available on my HDD. I thought there's a problem with GRUB loader. So, with the help of Boot-Repair software, through Ubuntu live mode, I reinstalled GRUB. When I restart, GRUB Loader is loading but without Windows 7 option. Please let me know where it went wrong? MY boot-repair log:

Pop in a live cd and navigate (usually) to /boot/grub/grub.conffor grub /boot/grub/grub.cfg for grub2

Manual add this to your config file

menuentry "Windows 7" {
   set root=(hdX,Y)
   chainloader +1

Where X=drive#, Y=partition#.

From your log it appears you have multiple partitions that could hold windows the above should be equal to one of these

  • (hd0,2) <-- this is my bet though
  • (hd0,3)
  • (hd1,1)
