I have a Lenovo ThinkPad x120e I just got, it came with Windows 7, I formatted it, installed a fresh copy (I just don't trust pre-packaged versions!) and in the process left some free space for an Ubuntu installation.
I grabbed Ubuntu 11.10, made a bootable USB drive, loaded up the live environment and ran through the install without a hitch, but rebooted and... straight to Windows.
My partition table looks something like this:
- 1.5 GB Root Partition (came with this--I assume it's "the EFI partition?") - NTFS (I think, if not, FAT32)
- 200 GB Windows 7 partition (NTFS)
- 80 GB ext4 partition with Ubuntu
- 2 GB swap
- 4(?) GB Recovery Partition (NTFS)
All I've found on here and in help sites are guides for 11.04 that involve manually compiling a bunch of things. How do I install grub2 on the EFI partition so I get a Windows 7/Ubuntu choice at boot?
