Ok, My issue is I have Windows 7 on one HD and Ubuntu 12.04 on a second HD, I installed Ubuntu 2nd yet I can not seem to find the GRUB menu allowing me to boot into Windows, In order to boot into Windows I have to load the bios and change the HD boot order.
Both the hard drives are 136GB SCSI HDs on a raid card.
I am new to Linux. I recently installed Ubuntu Desktop 11.10 onto my portable hard drive. Much to my surprise, it installed half of GRUB to the PC, and half to the PHDD. The PC does not belong to me. GRUB got removed from the PC, but that's not the issue. I want to be able to boot Ubuntu from my PHDD on any PC.
My BIOS has some problems and sometimes boot order of disks changes. I thought that if I insall grub on to the MBR of second data disk, it may boot. First disk(sda) is for boot and operating system, second disk(sdb) is for /var. All partitions are labeled and fsck has labels as partition references.
I have install grub on to MBR of second disk by "grub-install /dev/sdb".
