In win7 install easybcd EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies
Or diectly from EasyBCD Download Registration - NeoSmart Technologies
install it and run it. Now do this



Of course call it something like "Ubuntu".

Reboot. Now you see grub linux menu first. Select win7 there. Now you see the win7 bootmenu with 2 options: win7 and Ubuntu. Both are working?

Next time I would refer to your tutorial. One small thing though:
Step 2 - Add the Windows 7 boot entry
Step 2 - Review the Windows 7 / LinuxMint13 boot sequence =>Must be called Step 3
