I recently installed Ubuntu using Wubi from the main page on my Windows 8.1/Windows 7 system. After the installation finished, my computer booted directly into Ubuntu, not giving me a chance to get into Windows.

How can I insert a boot loader to select whether to boot to Windows or Ubuntu?

What version of Ubuntu are you using? – Whaaaaaat Jan 25 '14 at 20:29

Wubi always boots into Ubuntu automatically the first time after installing. Although you've probably figured that out by now.

If not, restart your computer and you'll see that you now have a choice.
