Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Basically I am having difficulty adding Ubuntu to my windows boot manager. I have downloaded easyBCD and followed the steps to add it yet it insists that the files are not there.

Here are the steps I followed:

1) Install windows 7 pro
2) Install Ubuntu 13.10 from a disk, custom partitions:

  • Ext 4 (30GB) mounted to \
  • Swap (10GB)

3) Download and Install easyBCD
4) Click add new entry
5) Select Linux, Grub 2
6) Went to select drive and where I should have an ext4 format drive it says hfs+
7) Chose this one anyway as that is where GRUB2 should be
8) When booting it cannot find the file "AutoNeoGrub0.mbr" in the NST folder

Are there any other methods I can try as I'd really like to get this working ASAP becuase I have programming coursework to do.

Also I have tried using ubuntu repair which when I do makes grub2 my primary loader and then that is able to boot into windows fine so I know both OS' are there just cannot get them in the right priority. –  user262751 Mar 29 '14 at 2:19
Try using grub customizer to adjust the priority of the OS's.. ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1664134 –  Elder Geek Jun 14 '14 at 20:54
