No Windows Boot Manager after Installation & Restart
today I used the Windows-based Ubuntu Installer (Wubi) as per Ubuntu Documentation.
I get as far as Completing the Ubuntu Setup Wizard and Reboot Now. But after rebooting I don't get the Windows Boot Manager to finish the installation. I always get back to Windows XP which operates as if nothing had happened. Or to use another installation guide (http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/...u-with-windows), I get through 1 to 6 but 7 never comes, I'm just back to Win XP.
Please note that I don't want a clean install as for the time being I stick with Windows but want to try and use occasionnally some programs on Ubuntu (and do a little programming, maybe).
Anyone an idea what might have gone wrong?
My basic OS: Windows XP SP3
Wubi: downloaded yesterday from here
Intended Ubuntu: Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 LTS
Thanks anyone reading and trying to help!
P.S. A small explanation of the difference between the Windows Boot Manager and the Windows (NT) Boot Loader (ntldr) would be appreciated.
