I have two partitions on my hard-didk , I have installed ubuntu on my 1st partition and windows 8 later on another partition.Now i can only boot into windows 8 because it doesn't recognize Ubuntu.
How would i dual boot my PC without using grub . I would like using Windows 8 boot manager as its pretty neat.
This is what i have tried :
I tried using easyBCD but it doesn't work.It causes the boot manager to switch to windows 7 Boot Manager .
EasyBCD creates a
C:/NST/AutoNeoGrub0.mbr file .
As EasyBCD was causing the boot manager to switch i created a manual entry to the BCD store uisng windows
bcdedit command and point it to the
C:/NST/AutoNeoGrub0.mbr file created by EasyBCD. This gave me the Windows 8 Boot-Manager with Ubuntu Entry,but grub is unable to find the root partition.
Is there any other work around or solution for this ?
Any help would be appreciated.
Note: The windows 8 boot Manager is sky blue color interactive menu with mouse and other options and windows 7 boot manager is the normal black and white one where you can only use your keyboard
I don't want to install grub because it would prevent my windows 8 from updating as its a genuine MSDN version and various other reasons
