Cannot boot into Win7 at all...


New Member
I installed EasyBCD because my freshly installed ubuntu's grub menu did not show up on boot. It just booted to Win7 directly.
So I installed EasyBCD to boot into ubuntu, then it will again show the grub menu, then I can boot ubuntu.

However, since I later selected skip the boot menu because I want it to directly show the ubuntu grub menu, now I cannot boot into Win7 at all.
Whenever I choose Win 7 in ubuntu's grub menu, it just directs me back to EasyBCD's boot menu which immediately jumps back to ubuntu's grub menu....:angry:

Is there a way to remove the EasyBCD menu or change it back to boot after x seconds?

Thanks in advance!!! :smile:
