I have gone through several answers listed and had a look at quite a few forums already. I understand that the root cause is the Windows 8 GRUB. When I check msconfig, it does not populate UBUNTU. My question is, is there any way to overwrite windows GRUB with Ubuntu?
AND also for background, I was running windows 7 and ubuntu dual. I upgraded 7 to 8 and have been having this problem ever since. Ubuntu was my primary os so it's pretty fail of me to simply upgrade to win 8 like this. However, i want to try and get ubuntu's grub to be the primary loader so that I don't have to reimage my OS partition.
Any help is most appreciated.
