http://www.linuxforums.org – I have recently installed Windows 7 AFTER having installed Ubuntu 9.10. When I reboot, the computer loads directly to Windows with no option to select an operating system after POST. I've been following the following guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...tallingWindows I've managed to reinstall the GRUB and get Ubuntu back up and running. At this point in the tutorial, it says: __________________________________________ If, after installing grub, Windows does not appear in the boot menu, you will need to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst (That is a lowercase "L" and not the number 1 in menu.lst) Open a terminal and enter: gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst __________________________________________ When I enter the aforementioned code, gedit opens, but the file is completely empty... Meanwhile, it's saying: Your Windows stanza should look something like this: title Windows XP/Vista # Use any title you wish, it will appear in the grub boot menu rootnoverify (hd0,0) # This is the location of the windows partition makeactive chainloader +1 So I'm a bit lost at this point. If anyone can help point me in the right direction it would be stellar! Thanks. (HowTos)
