    let me undersand do you want both windows bootloader and the grub (linux) runing at the same time? thats not ok. what you need is grub menu with windows 7 and linux entries when you boot and then you can pick one.
    just like this:

    Full chroot reinstall of grub2 usually works.

    You may have to install the osprober also to get it to find windows:

    It may appear that it is an evil circle, but perhaps not. Perhaps the windows boot is still there (well, the boot files) but Grub hasn't seen Windows yet. The reason is that Lubuntu doesn't come with the software that searches for the Windows partition. You have to install it before Grub will find Windows.

    So, if you are now booting to Ubuntu normally, without the LiveCD, open a terminal and run this command to install os=prober
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install os-prober
    Once it is installed, update Grub.
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    Now see if Windows is in your Grub menu:
    Code:
    grep "menuentry" /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    If it is, reboot, choose Windows and see if it will boot.

    If it isn't there, or if Windows won't boot, then please run the boot info script from the following link and post the contents of the RESULTS.txt that it produces. This will allow us to see the boot status of Windows and Ubuntu and figure out how to fix your dual-boot system.
