I am a complete newbie to Ubuntu so I am not sure what the correct terminology for this is. Anyway, here's what I did:
- Downloaded ubuntu-18.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso and unetbootin-windows-661.exe from their respective official sources.
- Fired up unetbootin-windows-661.exe.
- Selected "Ubuntu" from the "==Select Distribution==" drop down menu.
- Browsed to the ISO disk image that I had downloaded.
- Selected "Hard disk" from the type menu in the bottom left corner.
- Pressed OK.
Then I let the setup do it's thing and after it was done the message said that I would see an option named "UNetbootin" in the bootup screen the next time I reboot. So I rebooted but there was no such option! On the black screen titled "Windows Boot Manager" the only two options were Windows 7 and Macrium Reflect Recovery which I installed for backup purposes.
I tried rebooting multiple times but there's still no option to boot into Ubuntu. I also tried installing the live Ubuntu again and again. The setup terminated successfully every time and told me the same thing but there's still no option to boot into Ubuntu in the boot screen. I would boot using a usb drive but I don't have one to spare at the moment so please help me!
Concerning @Akib Azmain's answer, here's what happened:
I followed the listed steps and created a boot entry for the C:\ partition and this time there was a boot entry in the boot menu. However, it led me to this. Being a complete newbie to Ubuntu, I had no idea what to make of it. So I went back and created boot entries for all four partitions on my disk. All of them ended the same way.
I haven't tried the second option yet. I will do after I finish writing this.
