I have installed Windows 7 over Ubuntu 12.04 (on a different partition) and since I have installed Windows 7 as the last step, GRUB did not start and Windows 7 booted automatically.

In order to solve this problem, I had installed EasyBCD and added second partition and everything was okay, but I had 2 GRUB screens.

The first GRUB screen included Windows 7 and Linux Nero Start, and I could have accessed Ubuntu had I chose the Linux Nero Start entry (which included Ubuntu and Windows 7).

In the process of trying to eliminate the other GRUB screen, I deleted the Windows 7 GRUB screen on EasyBCD by accident, and now I cannot boot Windows 7 despite it being visible on GRUB.

If I choose Ubuntu, everything is ok, but if I try to choose the Windows 7 entry, the same GRUB menu screen boots again.

Can you please help me with my problem?

There are sentences like anit was totallyd the second that make no sense at all, and were probably just a word you forgot or a missclick. If you edited those it would be of great help.

The Boot Repair program will help you. You can find it on: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair That page contains all information you need. I used it once, when I was running two distros and made the same mistake as you.
