I have installed Ubuntu 12.10 next to Windows 7 in a separate NTFS partition.

I can boot Windows 7 but I can't find a way to choose Ubuntu and boot into it.

What do I do?

You say you installed Ubuntu in a NTFS partition. Did you use WUBI.EXE or did you boot boot from a live DVD/USB and install from there? – user68186 Nov 2 '12 at 12:14

You should consider installing Grub.

You can install it by using Resc-A-Tux.
This little live disk is made to boot and install/restore grub.
It's very easy to use, you just boot it and select install/repair.
