I have installed Ubuntu 13.04 from disk and it needed to restart after completion. If I am correct, I am supposed to get a menu at boot to select various Ubuntu boot options and a windows 8 boot option. I installed Ubuntu with the option to have it alongside windows 8. So far every single time I have booted my computer, it goes straight to Windows 8 rather than aforementioned boot menu. I have turned off Secure Booting and it is set to Windows UEFI in my mobo bios. I have an Asus Z87 Pro mobo, Intel 4770K processor with 4600 iGPU, Nvidia GTX 560, and i have windows 8 installed on my samsung SSD 250 gb and i assume ubuntu is installed on my secondary 500 gb western digital drive but it never told me specifically where it was installing anything to when i said to install alongside windows. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I can't figure out what is wrong with the boot. I tried changing it so that the secondary hard drive had boot priority and that didn't fix anything.
