  • Which method have you used to install ubuntu – user176105 Apr 10 '18 at 16:59
  • Hi you should be able to swap between the linux and windows partition at boot if you installed ubuntu correctly as a secondary OS. Do you remember what kind of installation you chose? Can you post here the output of the command sudo fdisk -l please? – zurg Apr 10 '18 at 17:07

Questions you should be asking: - Does the partition table show Windows7 still exists?
- What is the boot order BIOS references?

Additional Information that would be useful
- What kind of computer are you using? - Have you looked into the key combination to access the boot menu for your specific computer?

Assuming all is True
- The problem, if Windows still exists, is the first bootloader BIOS finds in its boot order schema is calling Grub.

Potential Fix Based on the latter
- Google the key combination (usually ESC, F8 or F10) for your specific computer to access the boot menu at the initial BIOS splash page.
- Once you are at the boot menu you can select the Windows partition and it will boot directly to it.
