This question already has an answer here:
I had Windows Vista and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS dual booting on my Lenovo SL300 laptop. I used a windows 7 home premium install disk to install 7 on a new partition. Then I uninstalled vista by deleting the windows vista partition. Now when I boot the computer it goes straight into windows 7 without displaying the GRUB bootloader.
The ubuntu partition is still untouched and I would like to be able to acess it without reinstalling ubuntu. Do I someohow need to confiure grub through windows? I still have my 12.04 LTS live disk, so I could maybe use that to access the GRUB files that are on my ubuntu partition? please help
