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
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
