I am really confused now. If the Windows boot loader is correctly installed in the MBR, there should be no "Grub loading". You should only have the Windows boot menu: (ignore the XP entry)

Attachment 62986

The Grub boot menu:

Attachment 62987

should only appear after you select Grub from the Windows boot menu?
Not what happens for me, but i think it was because i has a ubuntu entry in easybcd that didn't work so i deleted it. So now I'm pretty sure i only have grub now.

Are you able to boot to both 7 and Ubuntu with Grub then?

Yes, just i had 2 different entries for the same ubuntu and it called it some wierd name, and it called windows 7 windows vista so i tried to edit it, and it now gave me 3 entries for the same ubuntu but one is wrote how i want it, and 2 entries for windows 7 but 1 of them actually say windows 7. So how do i delete them extra entries?

Grub2 is more difficult to edit than the previous versions, can we do that at a later time? it is getting late for me, but you can always find me hanging around here!
