I just installed Ubuntu on my Windows Vista laptop using the Windows Installer.After the install i rebooted the system and Ubuntu started automatically. When i restarted again i did not get the option of choosing OS and directly went to Windows. i am a noob. Thanks for any help.
Right click on Computer, Properties, Advanced system settings, Startup& recovery settings, Time to display operating systems: Set it to 10.
1) Restart the PC
2) Press F8 (continuously)
3) You will get a GRUB (drive's boot menu), You will see the Ubuntu option. ENTER it. and YOUR DONE!!!!
