I am running windows 7 64 bit on my comp and just installed ubuntu 11.04 64 bit after partitioning the hard drive to give ubuntu 50gb of space.
I used a usb drive to try it out first and then i installed it and it worked perfectly and the asked me if i wanted to restart. I allowed it then it asked me to remove any 'installation media' AKA my usb drive and press enter. I did so but next a black screen came up with no text.
I thought it was part of the installation so i left my comp and came back 15 mins later but it still was at the black screen! I tried typing something, pressing 'esc' and even pressing the power button but nothing happened. Then I pressed the restart button and it restarted and booted into windows 7 with no trace of grub!!!!what am i supposed to do? I'm only a novice.
