Open your terminal and type:

sudo cp /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.bak
sudo nano /etc/default/grub

And change GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY to true(remember to remove # at the beginning).


sudo update-grub

If you don't want to see a bootloader to choose which OS to run then perhaps install one in a virtual machine in the other.

Alternatively change the time that the boot menu is there.

I'm not really understanding why you'd not want to see something to enable you to choose between Ubuntu and Windows 7 in a dual boot - could you elaborate.

What exactly You asking is not getting clear if u want that u not see any booting menu then u should use Virtualbox .

In other case if you want 2 install ubuntu over windows 7 then u must see this guide to install ubuntu over windows
