The screen to choose OS is a boot manager screen or a GRUB screen ?

Look at the first line of the OS choosing screen ... Is it saying "Windows Boot Manager" or "GNU GRUB" ?

What is the OS you have installed first ? Windows or Linux ?

If you want use your existing windows installation , you follow the METHOD 2 or METHOD 3 of the tutorial Partition - Mark as Active ,to mark your windows 7 's C partition as active, and then run Startup Repair for at least three times, with restarts after every single run. Later, you can add linux boot entry using EasyBCD.

if you want to reinstall windows, follow the tutorial SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation to clean the disk from GRUB and EFI partitions. But before that, dont forget to backup all your important data externally.
