New to ubuntu here and am trying to set up 12.04 alongside my windows7 install. I got the iso onto a flash drive, managed to install everything just fine, but when I restart the computer after completing the installation, I have no boot options and windows loads automatically.
This makes me think that I installed the bootloader in the wrong place and maybe bios cant find it, but im not sure..
This is an img of my disk partitions from windows.
Basically Ubuntu should go to the 360gb slot on disk1, but when i tried installing the bootloader in both that partition, and also in the root of that disk, neither were recognized during start-up.
Im hesitant to try and install it over my main boot (disk 0 :core) as this is a ntfs filesystem vs the ext4 that im trying to install ubunt with.
Basically just looking for the easiest way to get things running without affecting my windows too much. Any tips/ advice?
EDIT: So Ive now tried installing the bootloader on /dev/sda (Disk 0) where my windows boot is from, Ive checked to make sure bios is booting from this disk first, and I still have no boot options to select w7/ub. Are there any ways I can diagnose this problem further?
