I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 3521 with Windows 8 pre-installed. I then installed Ubuntu 12.04.2 on it. Both OS's are running fine for now but the problem is that I have to manually go into BIOS on startup and switch between Legacy and UEFI mode to boot into Ubuntu and Windows respectively. Is there anyway that I can just get GRUB to ask me on startup which OS I want to boot?
In case it is important, here's what I did to install Ubuntu -
- I shrank the Windows partition and then disabled SecureBoot and switched to Legacy mode.
- While installing Ubuntu from the Live CD, it did not detect that my system already had Windows 8 installed.
- I chose to manually allot partitions to /, /home, swap, /boot during installation.
- It also told me that there needs to be a Reserved BIOS setup partition, so I let it create that.
Any help would be much appreciated.
