I have an Ubuntu system on which I installed Windows knowing that I would lose GRUB. Now Windows is installed properly, but while booting I am not able to choose between Ubuntu and Windows. It directly boots to Windows but I can see the Ubuntu partition. How do I restore GRUB?


Boot into Ubuntu using a live-usb (Select try Ubuntu when asked).

Open terminal and install 'boot-repair':

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair

and choose the Recommended Repair.
