I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop to dual-boot it with Windows 7 that has already been installed. Then I used EasyBCD to configure it. When I choose Windows 7 in the menu, it boots directly to Windows.
When I choose Ubuntu, however, GRUB2 screen appears and I have to choose Ubuntu again.
How can I prevent that from happening?

In /etc/default/grub, change GRUB_TIMEOUT to 0 (i.e., zero)

Then update-grub, that should fix it.
