I reinstalled Windows 7 on my dual boot machine (thinkpad x220). To get back the bootmenu I followed this page on recovering Ubuntu after installing Windows on the Ubuntu help wiki

Boot-repair says repair successful. But I can't find the GRUB menu even after holding the shift key. It directly enters Windows. Here is the pastebin from boot-repair.

Any help would be appreciated!

Sometimes this happens, if you look through the log you will see that windows removed linux so you need to reinstall linux if you still want it
