Can anyone help me in installing BURG in my dual-boot Windows7/Ubuntu 12.10 laptop?
Precautions to be taken while doing so is also highly appreciated.

You can install Burg and Grub-Customizer (which also supports burg) by running the following commands.

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:n-muench/burg && 
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer && 
sudo apt-get -qq update && 
sudo apt-get install burg burg-themes grub-customizer

Use the program Grub-Customizer to edit, re-order or hide entries you don't want displayed. You can also adjust more complex settings like the resolution and default boot item.

You can then use burg-emu to "preview" your how your Burg installation will work, and change the theme if yuo wish. More information can be found in the tutorial How to make your Dual Boot better with Burg.

If you find your computer unable to boot for whatever reason, you can re-instate Grub with the help of the tutorial How to Repair, Restore, or Reinstall Grub 2 with a Ubuntu Live CD or USB.
