I just installed Ubuntu on a HDD and when I restart my computer, it goes straight to Windows 8 login. I have 256GB SSD (where my Win8 and other important programs are installed), and another 2TB HDD. I have the HDD split into two 1TB partitions. The first 1TB I save all my non essential software and the second is empty. So I want to install Ubuntu on my second 1TB partition.
These are the steps I followed -
- Right clicked on my
Other E:drive and clicked shrink and making a new partition for 100GB for my linux to be stored.
- Then I restarted my computer with Ubuntu CD and clicked
- Clicked continue until I reached where I want to install Ubuntu.
- I clicked
- Clicked on
free space-> then
- Size i put
2048MBfor Use as I put
Swap areathen I clicked ok.
- Then I made a root partition by clicking on the rest of
- The size I chose whatever is left in the free space. For mount point I chose the root
- For the boot loader installation drop down I chose
/dev/sdb ATA ST2000DM001-1CH1 (2.0 TB)(My Windows 8 loader is on /dev/sda1. Do I have to choose sda for my ubuntu boot loader installation as well?)
I continued with the installation, it asked me to remove my CD from drive and restart. I did so, but it always goes straight to Win8 and doesn't ask me what I'd like to boot!
Just for reference, my fast startup is turned off.
Does anyone know why I might be having this issue and how to solve it? I've tried a lot of different things...How do you even delete the linux I just installed that I can't access? Can I go to Disk Management and Delete that partition as a whole?
Thank you for all the help.
