I've been trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 as secondary OS on my laptop. The primary OS I have is Windows 8.
So I have partitioned drive where NTFS is for Windows 8 and other partition is EXT4 for Ubuntu.
When I installed Ubuntu I picked the EXT4 partition and picked 3 boot loader options so far:
/dev/sta ATA HITACHI (750 GB) <-= this... /dev/sta1 Windows 8 (loader) <-= and this... /dev/sta2 /dev/sta5 /dev/sta6 Ubuntu 12.04 (12.04) <-= and this... /dev/stb
After like 3 installations I still can't boot Ubuntu, nor can even see any boot loader... It goes straight to Windows 8 booting...
Please help! This has been very frustrating day and a half... And I don't think it should take that long to figure out =[
ANSWER: I could not find a proper solution for my problem. I'm not sure if I encountered some drive corruption, or program glitch, the only solution that fixed my problem was to make drive back-up and completely re-partition my hard-drive. Please post if anyone encounter similar problem. As I really would like to know why my drive failed to install Ubuntu on my drive.
