I had a working Ubuntu 11.04 installation, alongside Windows Vista. To avoid a triple upgrade, I decided to do a fresh install of 14.04 from a USB drive. However, after rebooting, the only OS choices I have were Windows and Ubuntu 11.04!
I searched for a directory called "
/boot", and I found one, containing
vmlinuz-3.13.0-32-generic (which I guess is 14.04) and all the other stuff I installed along with it, on a new partition that was apparently created during the installation, in the file "
/media." But how do I get it to show up in the list of operating systems I can choose from, when I reboot the computer?
update-grub (not "grub-update")( but it didn't do anything. I also tried the "try-out" version of 14.04 using my stick drive and update-grub there, but of course that does nothing because nothing is changed permanently once I shut down.
Why is my new 14.04 install not showing up and how can I get it?
My system has 3 hard drives and a DVD-Rom drive:
