- When the machine reboots you’ll see the GRUB loader where you can boot to Ubuntu or Windows 7.
- when you first boot into Windows 7, Check Disk runs, then reboots and you need to choose the Windows 7 option again from the bootloader.

Boot From Live CD
Open Terminal Window
type >sudo grub
then type : find /boot/grub/stage1
you'll get something like: (hd0, 1)
then type : >root (hd0, 1)
type: > setup (hd0)
Remove the Live CD and reboot the system.
