I installed Ubuntu 13.04 alongside Windows 7. At the reboot the system started in Ubuntu, without showing the Grub loader with options for Ubuntu or Windows. I have tried using Boot Repair but I had no luck. This is what come up with it: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6057306/

Any sudgestions?

UPDATE: (fdisk -l)

Looks like you've replaced it with Ubuntu, ...hope there is a backup. –  mikewhatever Sep 3 '13 at 9:33
    
How exactly did you install Ubuntu? What option did you choose when installing? –  Alaa Sep 3 '13 at 9:54

@SauravKumar the URL from boot-repair has all the info that we need (fdisk -l included). I agree with #mikewhatever that Windows OS has been replaced with Ubuntu. –  NikTh Sep 3 '13 at 10:11
    
@SauravKumar - I edited with the result of fidsk -l, thanks for your help –  UnoSolo Sep 3 '13 at 10:16
