new install dual boot
I just built a new computer, Gigabyte motherboard and Intel i5 processor. I started with a fresh Windows 7 installation on a new 1Tbt hard drive then loaded Lucid on the old 500 Gbt hard drive, also a fresh installation. I had 7 working good before starting the lucid install. Lucid installed and worked, but now there is no windows. I could not get it to boot. I tried everything I can think of or find searching the web. I found several repair disc for lucid. I tried loading 12.04, 32 bit and 64 bit, also 10.04 32 bit and 64 bit. I have 4 different repair disk with utilities to fix Grub, and they all work. but when I get Ubuntu working I lose Windows, then I repair windows and lose Ubuntu. I have gone back and forth for nearly 2 weeks. I don't remember what I have not tried, I have tried so much. It's not supposed to be this hard. Until I get some viable ideas on what to do next I will leave it as it is now, with Windows 7 working.
BTW the last thing I tried was to put Both on the same hdd. I split the 1Tbt hdd and put both OS's on one drive, that is where it is now.
Linux is the OS of the future, and will always be...
