    Exclamation GRUB problem with d/booting Ubuntu and Windows 8 RP

    Hi!

    I have a HP Pavilion dv6-2170ee which I installed Windows 8 Release Preview as a lone OS some time back.
    And yesterday, I installed Ubuntu 12.10, but now I'm facing problems with booting into Windows 8...

    Ubuntu seems to think it's a lone OS - "grub" doesn't show up at booting, and it boots directly into Ubuntu 12.10
    And because of that, I've got no way to boot into Windows 8 RP..

    Any help, guys?

    I'm kinda new to Ubuntu 12.10, so I'm not a genius with Terminal or what-so... simply step-by-step guides would be appreciated

    Are you in BIOS/MBR or UEFI/gpt. If you installed yourself you may be BIOS. New systems with Windows 8 pre-installed all are UEFI.

    To see what is where & details, you can run from your install, Ubuntu live ISO DVD or flash or full download of Repair system:

    Post the link to the BootInfo report that this creates. Is part of Boot-Repair:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Info
    Boot Repair -Also handles LVM, GPT, separate /boot and UEFI dual boot.:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair
    You can repair many boot issues with this or 'Create BootInfo' report (Other Options) & post the link it creates, so we can see your exact configuration and diagnose advanced problems.
    Install in Ubuntu liveCD or USB or Full RepairCD with Boot-Repair (for newer computers)

    You DO know that the RP expires in less than a month, right?

    It's scheduled to expire on January 15th, 2013.
    Mint 15 & 16; MS Win7 & Win8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
