Today I installed Ubuntu on to a pre-existing partition (I also made a swap partition during the installation) and when my machine went to restart, my screen went dark and did nothing, I did wait. There was power going to the machine.
I did a forced restart but now I have no clue how to boot to the partition that I have Ubuntu on. I have Windows 7, by the way. I have poked around my BIOS settings and I didn't see anything in the boot tab about choosing a partition to boot off of.
