I possess a lenovo x120e laptop powered with AMD Fusion E-350 processor. As I wish to have a dual boot machine, I installed Ubuntu desktop 11.10 amd64 along side Windows 7 on it. The installation was successful but the while booting instead of grub giving me options to choose which os to boot, my machine directly boots Windows 7. I have tried the steps mentioned at the following link

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/X120e

I successful installation had Legacy and UEFI boot enabled. When I tried installing with only Legacy boot enabled, the installation halts in between.

It would be deeply appreciated if someone could help.

Most of the times it will work,sometimes this may not work.In that case you can follow this article http://www.iceflatline.com/2009/09/how-to-dual-boot-windows-7-and-linux-using-bcdedit/ the second method is somewhat complex but it works for sure i used both methods.
