I installed Ubuntu using this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xK8X7_tYWmA
But it doesn't show the grub menu when I startup, it only boots into Ubuntu. I can look in my hard drive and clearly see Windows is still installed, so I didn't accidently install Ubuntu over it or anything.
Earlier today i installed ubuntu 12.10 beta. Grub wasn't booting, but just going directly to my primary OS Windows 7. I assumed i had partitioned incorrectly, because partitioning isnt my strong suit. I used boot repair because it was well recomanded off a live usb. Afterwards, grub appeared, but i only had options for Ubuntu, Advanced Ubuntu Option, and my hidden windows 7 recovery partition.
I installed Ubuntu 13.04 over pre-installed Windows 8 (from Dell). I do have backup and recovery disk for windows 8.
The problem now is that the Windows 8 OS is not recognized by Grub during boot; and I can now only login to Ubuntu.
Also, the recovery disk does not find any issues with Windows OS or the Windows boot loader.
I tried boot-repair, update-grub; but it still is the same.
I am very new to ubuntu so please forgive my ignorance. I have installed ubuntu 12.04 onto my netbook via usb which all seemed fine until it did it's first restart and now just cannot find the system at all unless i have the usb plugged in. I need to get the grub from the usb over to the hd but nothing as of yet has worked for me.
