Yesterday I installed Ubuntu 12.04.1 64bit in my laptop with windows 7. The installation was dual. I did the required partition and kept a free space for linux. I gave the appropriate space for swap area and ext4. Ubuntu got installed well. Then finally after installation, I was asked to reboot my system.
While rebooting, as we expect, the system should ask me whether I want to start windows or linux. But it did'nt ask me any of it. The system directly takes me to windows without giving me any option for linux. I tried restarting again, but i was directly taken to windows. Can you help me know this ? Did i go wrong somewhere with my installation? How can i correct it and get to linux ?
Thanks in advance..
I thank you for your reply. I am not sure in which partition did I install my grub. Honestly this is really new to me. I am trying to follow the instructions mentioned in the link you provided. It is really a clear description on how to install ubuntu step by step. But however, I am stuck at using the "EasyBCD" tool. I have tried installing several times, but after installing, when I try to run it, it gives me an error saying,
"error Opening BCD Registry"
I have attached the image as well. Could you give me an alternative ? Or any way to resolve that?
