I booted up ubuntu and it's working fine.
I tried to boot windows 7. It blinks for a second and the booting screen again comes back.

Hi please read this

Also try 'sudo update grub'. thus is ubuntu's automagic grub bootloader configuration script.

if this does not work, post output of file '/boot/grub/grub.cfg' and 'sudo fdisk -l'

Yeah, it's issues like these (and the strides the various VM tools have made) that has shifted my position when getting someone setup to try out linux that, unless there's a real, concrete reason the actual HW is needed, to just suggest the VM route (I personally prefer VirtualBox)
