I have a problem with dual-booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu on my computer. When I chose Ubuntu, another option appears that lets me choose a kernel version. However, the kernel I just installed is not on this list.

Version in the list: 3.5.2 Updated installed version: 3.5.3

Para solução o problema usei seguinte comandos: sudo apt-get update sudo && apt-get install grub-pc – Bruno Sep 1 '12 at 23:58

You have probably not updated GRUB after installing your new kernel. Try running:

$ update-grub
$ grub-install /dev/sda

Replace "sda" with the appropriate disk if grub is not installed on the MBR of your first hard drive.
