I just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on a machine with Windows 7 already installed. I want to setup the dualboot environment.
I have a block of unallocated disk space at the end of the disk (some blog post suggested to do so). Then I started installing Ubuntu 11.10 on that part of disk. I installed the boot loader to /boot partition and the installation finished successfully.
However, after installation, Ubuntu 11.10 doesn't show up on boot menu. Then I searched on Internet and I used EasyBCD to add a grub2 boot to boot menu. After this, the boot entry does show up in the boot menu, however it only boot into some sort of grub console. I tried many times, and it doesn't work. It looks like the boot loader is not properly installed?
I only have one 1.5TB disk and the first 800GB is NTFS partition with Windows 7. Does this work?
