I have an Asus U47A Laptop with no discrete graphics. UEFI is disabled in the BIOS. I had Windows 7 installed by default. So, I installed Ubuntu 12.04 by creating a separate 300GB partition. During the installation, it asked me where to install the bootloader.
So, I installed the bootloader on
/dev/sda option which selects my entire hard disk I guess. I was also asked to create a separate 1MB BIOS Grub partition before proceeding but I choose to ignore it cause I had the UEFI boot disabled. Now, after installation, the system just loads Windows 7.
I cannot see the Ubuntu grub/login screen. So, I went to the BIOS and saw that under boot options, it is still set to Windows bootloader option. So, what do I do now? Should I change the boot entry in the BIOS? If so, then to what (Windows recognizes the new Linux partition as 'D' Drive)?
I don't want to remove Windows but dual boot. Any help would be really appreciated.
