comment Grub or Windows Bootloader for Dual Boot?
Windows boot manager can be configured using configuration files or tools like EasyBCD to show other operating systems.

Thanks. My solution ended up being to use Windows 7. I'm planning on going back to 8 at some point. (Windows 7 64-bit is being freaky, and I want to see if 8 is too).

comment sync music with a iPhone 4 iOS 6
@Alvar if you pay, I think you can sync music you already had… Still a good point.

Oh, also, did you install from Windows (WUBI) or by booting the CD?

comment I don't start win7 from grub2
It looks like you have multiple hard drives. Is this true, and if so did you install Linux to the one with Windows on it or not? There are Windows-compatible partitions on both.

Thanks for the data! I ended up just going with EasyBCD for the remainder of using Windows 8, and kept it when I switched back to 7.

comment Ubuntu 12.04 crashes when using Youtube
What computer are you running it on (Model number or specs)? Does this happen if you enable HTML5 (from youtube.com/html5)? Does this happen in Windows? Do any other video playback or web gaming sites cause the same effect?

I'd accept other answers, the one I marked as correct is OK but I'd prefer an answer that allows GRUB to work.

comment I have Ubuntu alongside Windows Vista and I cannot reboot Windows Vista
Ah, that means your install assumes that you boot Vista first. When you start up, do you get a choice screen with a box with a list (GRUB) or a block of text, options, and another block of text, in a larger font (NTLDR)?

if grub-customizer is installed, it should open a window. the way terminal works, you can run one program at a time - if launched from the launcher, it shouldn't be giving you a terminal. Try closing the terminal, opening a new one, and running sudo -v, typing your password, then sudo grub-customizer; this should bring it up if installed
