I have installed Ubuntu 13.04 along side Windows 7 using the Something Else option.

  1. I had kept 20 GB of unallocated space.
  2. After selecting the "Something Else" option, I created a partition of 15 GB with:
    • file system EXT4
    • mount "/"
    • and 5 GB for swap

After installation completed, it asked for a restart, so I did! But now it only boots into Windows 7. There is no option to start Ubuntu!!

Anybody know about this problem???

Try tapping some keyboard buttons which will show you OS to boot. Different motherboards have different buttons assigned to them. Mine is "space". As I press it on boot it gives me option to choose OS to boot. You can search for yours by searching 'choose OS on startup dual boot'.
