    Exclamation Reinstalled Win 8, Can't Use Ubuntu

    I had Window 8 and Ubuntu 12.04 working perfectly side-by-side. Then all of a sudden, Windows 8 had an error when booting up, and I reinstalled it. After I rebooted, I didn't see the GRUB menu and the computer booted directly into Windows. Help!

    (edit: When I press Shift on startup, I don't see GRUB.)

    Thanks,
    DG
    I'm really looking forward to Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail! Are you?

    Take a look at this tool, use the recommended repair, with a live ubuntu cd or download its cd.

    If you still are having problems post the http address of the bootinfo summary that is generated by using the tool.

    It worked! That program could have saved me a lot of trouble many, many times. Thank you SO much!
