At first grub was appearing and i was able to start ubuntu but then i had to switch to windows but windows was not booting when i select windows 7 it jumps back to grub window. So i fix the Windows Boot Loader using repair from windows media and wolla windows started to boot but Ubuntu Grub gone.
I had installed windows 7 and ubuntu 12.04 side by side using dual boot.
Recently I reinstalled my windows and the grub menu disappeared .I ran a boot repair from my ubuntu live cd to reinstall grub but it is still not showing ubuntu but only windows in grub http://paste.ubuntu.com/1059475
I just installed ubuntu 12.04 using a different partition for the /boot (I don't know why exactly I did this, I remembered reading somewhere on the web about this). The thing is that after this operation, the grub is not showing at boot, so the computer is loaded directly into windows.
Okay so, I had connected an external harddrive via ATA/IDE to USB cable to install Ubuntu 8.10 from my laptop so i could use the external harddrive which really is the master harddrive for another computer. I had successfully installed ubuntu onto that harddrive but i cannot boot into windows on my laptop without that harddrive plugged in.
Have a little issue with getting ubuntu and windows 7 working.
This is what has happened.
I had a 320GB harddrive which has my windows on and a 500GB harddrive with just data on. I shrunk the 500GB to allow for a 30GB partition for ubuntu,
I then installed ubuntu by selecting install alongside windows option from the live cd.
Hey, everyone. I currently have a dual-boot setup with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04
Whenever I start my computer after booting windows previously I'm presented with a different GRUB than usual. I recently downloaded and installed linux kernel 3.6.0 and made some changes to GRUB using GRUB customizer. So I have been doing some tweaking with those files.
I installed Linux Mint 15 on my machine where Windows 8 was pre-installed. After successfully doing so, the grub menu would not show when I would boot the computer. It would boot straight into windows.
