I've installed -correctly- Ubuntu 11.10 64b on top of Windows 7 Home Pro 64b but the Grub menu is not showing on laptop boot. The laptop is a Samsung rv420. I ran a tool called boot-repair but didn't apply suggested patches. I generated a log instead, which follows:

  • Boot Ubuntu Live-CD
  • Open Terminal
