Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This is the first time I installed Ubuntu(v12.04). I have a HP laptop pre installed with Windows 8. I installed it alongside Windows and the installation was successful. But after the customary restart post installation, the Grub menu didn't show up and the system booted into Windows automatically. This is happening ever since, the grub menu doesn't show up at all and I cannot boot into Ubuntu 12.04.

I was having some problems with the default UEFI settings so I had to disable Secure Boot and enable Legacy for my LiveUSB to get detected in the first place. Does this action cause any problem?

Totally stumped. Please help. Thanks. :)
