Noob here, please bear with me. I installed Ubuntu 14 LTS on a separate partition of size 10GB and formatted it to ext4 during installation. Now it is not visible through windows.
The installation finished, was asked to reboot. The boot menu still shows only Windows. I was not asked an option like "dual boot" during ubuntu installation like some guides stated.
So right now, I installed ubuntu but dont know how to boot into it.
I searched this forum and they stated I overwrite the windows bootmanager with GRUB using the ubuntu DVD. You know how scary this is to a noob.. Everything may not go according to instructions and I may lose all data. Along with some posts about grub errors, not able to restore etc.. So honestly I am scared.
Is there a way to simply add ubuntu option to the boot list during bootup?
