Open a terminal and run the following command (you'll need to enter your password) - you should get messages saying Ubuntu found, and one for Win7 (and maybe one for Windows recovery). Then reboot and see wwhat happens
Code:
sudo update-grub

this was the output of the command:

carlos@carlos-X401U:~$ sudo update-grub
[sudo] password for carlos:
Generating grub configuration file ...

It means it only found Ubuntu - what does this return
Code:
lsblk -f
Ignore the warning - it's just a warning, can be fixed later

You can probably guess for yourself that Win7 has been over-written. Hard to know how that happened - let's just confirm what that disk layout is
Code:
sudo parted /dev/sda print free

i think i know how,in the installation options, it said erase peppermint 4 and all files. (i previously isntalled a 32 bit version of peppermint it was faulty since my pc's 64 bit). it didn't say win 7 AND peppermint 4. os i chose it. maybe together with peppermint it was erased.

well, thanks and i appreciate your help in figuring out thsi matter, thanks...
