I know that there is lots of people with the exact same problem, but I can't get an answer from another place (I've really been trying for hours), so here is my problem.
I got Ubuntu 13.04 on my CD and I installed it beside Windows. Something went wrong and it said
"Executing 'grub-install /dev/sda' failed. This is a fatal error"
I could choose where to install the bootloader and I selected /sda . But after rebooting, I went to Windows, which I didn't wanted to. I tried the boot-repair (recommended) and it said:
Boot successfully repaired.
You can now reboot your computer. Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sdb (500GB) disk!
I rebooted and I got ubuntu, just like I wanted. But then after an hour of using, I pressed at 'Shut down'. Like 2 hours after, I came Again but saw the Windows logo another time. I tried to use the boot-repair and it said the exact same thing, but when I rebooted I just went to Windows Again.
So That's my problem. I have the link for the first boot-repair 'installation' right here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5631563/.
Does anybody have an idea of what to do? Can I activate something that will make the computer asking me for which OS I wanna use when I start up (It did after the first boot-repair)? Or can't I just make ubuntu my default?
UPDATE: In BIOS Settings, I can choose between these:
- International CD/DVD ROM DRIVE
- USB Diskette on Key/USB Hard Disk
- USB CD/DVD ROM Drive
- Notebook Hard Drive (Really think this is Windows)
- ! USB Floppy
- ! Network Adaptor
