Is it safe as instructions said?
If I install Ubuntu by this way, could I while updating Ubuntu update grub?
because I saw this way install Ubuntu, when start Ubuntu is using Windows's boot manager.
I am having some trouble installing Ubuntu 12.04 with the Windows installer. The instructions at http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/install-ubuntu-with-windows say (in step 7) that I chose to boot with Ubuntu, but the black screen doesn't come up: it just goes straight to Windows. I've tried to boot it from a USB stick but it won't read it until Windows boots up.
I'm installing Ubuntu 12.10 along side windows 7. I have installed windows then Ubuntu 12.10, each on a different partition. while choosing where to install boot loader I left the default, it was my hard disk name in general not a specific sda or something like that. everything was fine and after rebooting again windows start up logo appeared.
I have dual boot configured with Windows 7 (32bit) and Ubuntu 12.04(64bit). I installed Ubuntu after windows, now my windows is corrupt due to some virus and I need to reinstall it. Currently when I start my PC, grub loader comes up and I need to select Ubuntu or Windows.
I was wondering how can I install windows again and still have my Ubuntu install?
I have followed the Ubuntu windows installer procedure, but after step 7 I get a message from the windows boot manager saying that windows has failed to start and that I should insert a (nonexistent) windows installation disk.
Further on it reports
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.
I followed the instructions for the Ubuntu windows installer on my Sony Vaio laptop (model SVT131A11M). Upon restart I was prompt to choose the OS for boot (Win7 or Ubuntu), but then I shut down the machine and from the next boot, every time I choose to boot into Ubuntu, the GNU GRUB terminal appears with a grub> prompt.
Now I'm able to boot into Win7, but can't boot into Ubuntu properly.
