I have just installed ubuntu 12.04 alongside my existing windows 7. But I do not get any option to boot into windows 7. I have tried to install a grub such that I now have a boot menu in which I should be able to choose windows 7 (only ubuntu options appears).

(I have found no help in similar questions)
