Can't find Windows 7 on GRUB

I installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 to my Windows 7 PC but I had to manually partition my drive and Ubuntu works fine but when I restart my PC on Grub it shows Ubuntu and Ubuntu advanced so I can't find Windows Loader. I tried re arrangeing the boot drives but that didn't work. Please help I need Windows back.

  1. First off, I moved your thread here into the Linux sub-Forum for a better chance of a response. You mention "drives" - can you not set BIOS to ask which hard disk from which to boot every time?

    It might be easier than configuring Grub now it's not as easy as it was when you could simply edit menu.lst

    It doesn't ask which drive to boot from unless I enter BIOS Settings which I already did. If you could tell me how to edit the menu list that would be nice.
    I also am a noob to linux.

    In Ubuntu run "sudo update-grub'

    It is a script using tool osprober that will automagically add windows to your grub list.

    Or if you want to use a GUI

    I dd this but now I have to reset my HDD. Fortunately I did this like two weeks ago so I am good. Also should I load Ubuntu anymore or will my PC go screwy again?
  5. You can safely boot Ubuntu.
