In Windows 7 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 Windows 7 there. Now you see the Windows 7 bootmenu with 2 options: Windows 7 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
