I installed Ubuntu alongside Windows 7, but when I reboot the computer I cannot switch between the two systems. How can I solve this problem?

  • Which OS is booting for you? – dibs Jul 12 '14 at 23:00

If your grub is not listing both Ubuntu and Windows try using Boot Repair.

If you are unable to access Grub I would take a look at this question about restoring grub.


Try to update grub menu. Boot into Ubuntu and open terminal (ctrl+alt+t) enter the command

sudo update-grub

Restart to see if worked or not.

If that did not work then use Boot-Repair
