I have computer which boots to either Ubuntu 13.04 or Windows 7.I installed unetboot on Windows 7.Using unetboot i selected boot from hardisk ubuntu ultimate edition 3.5 & i restarted.Upon restarting i got prefix not found & then grub 1.99 ubuntu3.I tried booting from live cd but it is of no use & same error.
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 have installed Win7 first, then installed Ubuntu and that made Ubuntu the 1st choice on the boot order, but since I am natively a Windows user I tried to put Windows on 1st place via grub customizer, but after I pulled it on the 1st place, when I choose windows 7 on boot meny it gives me an error "A disk read error occured.
This might be a common issue, but I cannot find any other words to describe my problem. After I uninstalled openSUSE and deleted the boot option towards this OS in order to have no trouble booting on Windows 8, I cannot boot ANY linux distro anymore after they're being installed.
When I try to boot Ubuntu when it gives me a choice between Windows 8 and Ubuntu, it comes up with a screen that tells me to put in the Windows Installation Disc. I started to use a USB. I downloaded Ubuntu i3 onto the USB through pendrivelinux. I have read that I need to switch my Boot Order so that the USB will boot instead of my hard drive. I can't find that.
I have a laptop that supports EFI/UEFI. I have Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu 12.04 on it. The way I installed my OSes was like this:
I installed Win 8.1 in the required partitions then Installed ubuntu and installed the boot loader in the same partition that I installed ubuntu. The previous time I did so, I used boot-repair to fix my grub so it would show both windows and ubuntu OSes and it worked.
I've recently loaded Ubuntu alongside my Win 7 laptop in order to polish up on my unix command line skills to take the Linux + certification. I came across an article on how to change the default boot order for a dual boot system but cannot find it again....
Currently my machine boots Ubuntu by default unless I arrow down to the windows installation.
