So i have always been a windows user and this was my first time installing a linux based os to my computer. After watching a tutorial on youtbe and reading the guide on the ubuntu website the installation seemed straight forward and for the most part it was, After succesfully installing Ubuntu alongside Windows 8 ubuntu promped me to restart my computer so i did, after it restarted instead of giving me a screen where i can choose wich OS i can boot it just went straight to Windows 8, i have no idea how to run the Ubuntu i installed because every time i restart it goes straight to windows. I am kind of sad because i allocated 100GB of HDD space to ubuntu and it would be a shame that i wont be able to get it back. Can anyone help me with this. I am 100% new to linux. If needed these are my PC specs Intel i7-3632qm Quad Core 64bit 8GB RAM DDR3 1TB HDD HP Envy m4 laptop
*Note-*If anyone can help the gentlemen directly most welcome, i did not find a simple clearcut solution on the net so i have complied this list.

It seems that the Ubuntu bootloader (grub) has not been installed correctly. So you could boot from the dvd from which you installed ubuntu , and then follow this guide- https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair
