I removed Win8, changed partition table from GPT to MBR and installed Win7. The problem is that I don't see the grub after I installed ubuntu and only win7 boots. Any ideas? I tried to reinstall all of listed above about 5 times but with no success :( I tried both 13.04 and 13.10

My SSD contains 2 (reserved+main) NTFS primary partitions, and 2 (/ + /home) ext4 extended partitions. Secure boot disabled, CSM enabled.

UPD: I also tried Boot-Repair and it installed the grub2 for me but unfortunately only with options to run ubuntu, so I repaired bootrecord using windows tools to have an ability to run to windows. Anyway I still cannot configure the dual boot. Please help :)

Often recommended for dual boot is EasyBCD Its a Windows program that can alter your bootloader and is therefore able to add an Ubuntu entry to your Windows loader.

Edit: here is a little guide on how to use the tool:

It's quiet strange, but after I installed ubuntu FROM DVD (NOT FROM USB), the GRUB successfully found win7 loader and everything is OK.
