Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I recently installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my Lenovo G570 with 2nd gen dual core processor with 2 gb ram with Pre installed Windows 8 pro. Whenever i start my system, it automatically loads Windows 8. When i go into msconfig, it shows only 1 os i.e. Windows 8. Everywhere in windows where it shows the installed OSs, it shows only Windows 8 Pro.

I installed Ubuntu on a separate partition of 15 GBs and the installation was successful. I wanted to install Ubuntu inside Windows 8 using wubi but whenever i tried that, my system automatically restarted.

So my problem is that I am not able to load Ubuntu.
