Best to see details, so we know what to suggest.

Post the link to the Create BootInfo summary report. Is part of Boot-Repair:

Miral_Hassni; Hi ! Welcome to the forum.

An easy thing to install grub . But it must be installed to the proper place. We need to find that where.
Please boot up the liveDVD(USB) in "try ubuntu" mode to a terminal (at the desktop key combo ctl+alt+t yields a terminal ).
Post back the output of terminal command:

sudo fdisk -lu

which will detail the hard drive(s) partitioning, such that we know what we are working with.

The output in your last post does show a Linux partition (sda7) but it would probably be best if you could post the output of the bootrepair BootInfo Summary suggested above. This will give more detailed information such as whether you are using MBR or UEFI. The bootloader for Ubuntu hasn't been properly installed and this information will be useful for someone to make a suggestion.
