I just installed Ubuntu and upon bootup there is no GRUB, bootloader, or anything. I tried holding down Shift while booting, that brought up GRUB but it did not display Windows 7. I know that Windows 7 is still on the disc, because I can view the partition from Ubuntu. I'd appreciate any help y'all can give.

Boot into Ubuntu, mount your Windows drive, open Terminal (Control+Alt+T), and run:

sudo update-grub

Then reboot.

If the previous answer doesn't work, try to boot Ubuntu as a live CD and run boot-repair. It's fixed every boot problem I had. http://www.howtogeek.com/114884/how-to-repair-grub2-when-ubuntu-wont-boot/
