How can I prevent the second menu (grub) appearing in Ubuntu 14.04 (Timeout =0 doesn't do it)?

I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04 on the same hard drive (dual boot) and EasyBCD. When booting I get the Windows menu to choose either Windows 7 or Linux Ubuntu. If I select Linux I get another menu (a Grub menu?). I have changed the Grub timeout to 0 but this has had no effect, I still get both menus. I just want the first (the Windows menu), how do I achieve this?

`man grub.conf`

`man grub.conf`

Starting with Windows 7 and 8, there must be a separate section used for the bootloader of the those systems. When you install a Linux OS, another section or partition is used for Grub. Both bootloaders are stored in something called a bios boot partition. These bootloaders are kept separate to keep one from overwriting the other. Windows has its own boot loader and linux has Grub.

When installing linux on a windows 7 or 8 system, you are asked to create a separate bios bootloader partition for grub. You don't have to. Yet do not place any additional bootloaders in the bios partition used to boot windows. I would leave the boot setup as is.
