comment How to install grub on this system
It will, but the GRUB menu will not allow you to boot Win7 (the Win7 entry in GRUB will fail). GRUB cannot manage a mix of UEFI and non-UEFI systems.

comment How can I repair grub? (How to get Ubuntu back after installing Windows?)
it does not act on luks partitions at all, so it cannot mess them up. And it uses apt-get only when GRUB purge is needed.

comment grub-pc missing
When prompted by Boot-Repair, please type the sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sda6" apt-get install -y --force-yes grub-pc linux command in a terminal on 1 line only. (in your question it appears broken on 2 lines)

No, you just need to run Boot-repair from a live disk. See help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair#Getting_Boot-Repair
