I installed 12.04 alongside XP and when I restart it says ubuntu is not there and ONLY choice I have is XP without booting from CD for demo, I reinstalled thinking I missed somthing but no luck. What am I missing?? Thanks

Think I found it I did not remember this machine had 2 HD's and it put it on the 2nd one.

But now that I took out 2nd drive it will only let me replace XP not install along side.

Are you using the default OS loader? Have you installed GRUB? –  Evandro Silva Oct 6 '12 at 16:10
    
By "it", do you mean GRUB or the standard XP boot screen? –  Marty Fried Oct 6 '12 at 16:19
    
I have the demo CD of 12.04 thats what I am installing from and it did not say anything about GRUB just asked if I wanted to install alongside XP. I checked the GRUB menu.lst and it is non existant. –  Tom Oct 6 '12 at 18:26
    
as for "it" that was in reference to the problem of why it would not boot but now it won't even let e try and install along side it. So still on the learning curve thanks Evandro and Marty. –  Tom Oct 6 '12 at 18:27
