[ubuntu] Terrible woes setting up dual boot with Windows 8

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi All, I have an Ubuntu 10.4 installation boot disk, and all I'm trying to do is set up a partition on a new Windows 8 machine. I've used Gparted and set aside the space (unallocated), then installed Ubuntu but after rebooting, there's no grub loader! It just boots directly to Windows 8. Have been struggling with this for days. Just can't figure out why the operating system is unable to be accessed. Is there some way to set up a separate bootable Ubuntu partition for 10.4? Is there something I'm missing. Thanks (Hardware)
