a good place to start would be type "sudo fdisk -l" in terminal, this will write your partition table. – Joshua Siret Jul 15 '12 at 13:10
(write it in the terminal and edit your post!) – Joshua Siret Jul 15 '12 at 13:16

From you booted Ubuntu system, use the following command in a terminal
sudo update-grub
This should detect windows 7 and add it to the boot menu.
