I have installed windows 8.1 after installing Ubuntu on my laptop .. so Ubuntu disappeared from boot menu ... I used EasyBCD and added a new entry ..

But still doesn't work .. when I restart my laptop the boot menu shows Ubuntu .. but by clicking on it the laptop restarts then black screen appears with a "_" blinking ..

enter image description here

Any help to recover Ubuntu?


You could try reinstalling GRUB into the MBR (Master Boot Record) of your hard drive.
To do that, you will need an Ubuntu live CD/USB stick.

There are many tutorials available online, f.e. this one.
