Windows 7 Bootloader Access
Easy BCD is the one I have used to edit the boot order of Windows installations. If it is not working, I don't think it could be because of GRUB.
I would suggest that you research how the Windows bootloader works.
To quote from Wikipedia: "All Windows installations will be found by Linux bootloaders, but Windows boot managers do not recognize Linux ".
Perhaps you have not used Easy BCD correctly?
Hope this helps
See here for full details: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Gr...iguring_GRUB_2
As root, edit the file /etc/default/grub.
Look for the line GRUB_DEFAULT.
Change the number to the appropriate partition.
Save and exit, run
If all goes well, you should be set.
I use EasyBCD when Windows will be the most used OS or when I think there's a likelihood that the machine will be reverted to Windows-only. Install grub on the Linux boot partition, not in the MBR. Read and understand the Linux notes in EasyBCD, and it's pretty simple to use.
