I just helped a friend install Ubuntu on his machine alongside Windows. I did this by clearing out the Dell recovery partitions ahead of the Windows 7 partition and installing Ubuntu in the approximate 20GB space resulting.
However, we seem to have encountered some trouble. It would appear that the GRUB2 menu is not showing itself at boot time, which to mee seems to hint that GRUB2 is not detecting windows. I added the windows partition manually to the 40_custom file and ran update-grub2, but this didn't do anything to fix the issue.
What additional information can I provide for help troubleshooting this issue? Thanks in advance for any help!
