I'm starting up with Linux and having loads of issues. Already tried to find answers here, but can't make anything out of them.
I installed Ubuntu (64 bit version) on a partition of my W7 HHD and created a SWAP too, but W7 keeps on booting straight away. I do not get any Grub2 menu. As I do not have a CD device, I am using USB for everything.
I tried several things that I found here to fix it (besides right shift and Esc repeatedly):
Try Ubuntu without installing (after being installed) would not let me click on anything.
Burn a Live-CD on my USB, open a terminal and use:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
but it will say "command does not exist". Besides, it does not appear to recognize Ubuntu's installation. When I tried to use:
the system gives me a message saying if I'm sure if /dev is installed.
Burn a boot-repair USB and run it, but it says that I need internet access to complete the operation and repair grub2, and as I do not have a LAN connection I can´t do it either.
I also tried reinstalling and updating Ubuntu, downloading another iso just in case, but with similar results.
Any advice will be highly appreciated.
I have extracted the boot-repair info file, in case it helps for this issue.
