I would try using "boot repair". For all my boot problems the default setting has worked for me. From blank grub screens on a 12 year old computer to booting from a windows 7 install.

Basically you will boot from a live dvd/usb and install boot-repair via this command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair && sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair

and select recommended repair. I will uninstall and reinstall grub, so if windows removed it, this will fix it.

Again, for me this has been the easiest way.
