Basically installed windows 7, followed by Ubuntu installation. Option to boot windows appears in GRUB menu, but when I select it and hit enter I get redirected back to same GRUB menu? What could possibly be wrong?

Try to use this tool => boot-repair to resolve your problem. If problem persists then give here the link with boot-info summary. – NikTh Nov 27 '12 at 21:13
Did you install Windows 7, and then do a few re-starts and update for Windows 7? OR Did you immediately install Ubuntu after installing Windows 7? – david6 Nov 27 '12 at 21:37
