While I was installing Ubuntu I unplugged my Windows 7 HDD so I wouldn't accidentally partition it. I installed Ubuntu, shut off my computer, plugged back the HDD, rebooted (and using the BIOS boot menu, selected Ubuntu). Ubuntu recognized the HDD with Windows 7 on it, and can mount it fine.

After several attempts (re above URLs) with boot repair, I was finally able to boot into my Ubuntu 12.04 installation, but despite trying everything I could think of, XP still not recognized as a boot option.
On my HP Envy dv6-7350sl just bough with Window 8,
I upgraded to Windows 8.1,
then installed Kubuntu 13.10 (64bit).
=> On the Grub menu I got the boot hanging on both Windows and Kubuntu/Ubuntu.
So I launched Boot Repair 64bit for Ubuntu 13.04.
=> Only improvement is with new Windows choices it does not hang but come back to GRUB menu...
I read your post about Ubuntu Secured 64 bits CD . I have been fighting with my Ubuntu installation for several days with no luck. My issue is that my Toshiba Satellite computer boots directly to Windows 8.1. To get to Ubuntu, I have to hold the F12 key during boot to get to a Windows menu that allows me to select my boot media.
I have an Asus notebook with Win 8 pre-installed. In the options, Legacy was enabled, and secure boot was disabled. I installed Ubuntu using a flash drive. My problem is that after installing, I can't access Ubuntu. If I use my flash drive again, it says Ubuntu 13.04 is already installed.
I have a problem with my dual boot (windows 8 and ubuntu 13.1) on my asus vivo book.
Actually I'm writing from a live of linux-secure-remix and I already used the boot repair tools.
I can access and use Windows 8, but I can't boot with Ubuntu (also with recovery mode), the process is interrupted after few seconds.
Here, there is my summary report: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6416043/
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.
I have Windows on my machine and then installed Ubuntu 12.04 using USB. I was not getting the option to boot into windows, so I ran boot-repair but still I am not getting option to boot into windows. Below is my paste ubuntu url. What can be the issue ?
