    2) Use Boot-Repair's Recommended Repair. (It should convert your Ubuntu into Legacy mode.) Indicate us the new URL that will appear.
    3) reboot the computer and tell us what you observe.
    I had Windows 7 pre-installed in my laptop. (So, I do not have any recovery DVD). When trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 somehow my bootloader went broken. I've tried to use Boot-repair's recommended repair. However, it didn't find sda7 after I wrote the instruction on terminal. http://paste.ubuntu.com/1529385/
    So, I am able to boot neither Windows 7 nor Ubuntu.

    Any suggestion?

    I'm a windows user planning to switch to Ubuntu

    my knowledge level , plan to buy a new workhorse windows laptop and fears on dual boot etc are expressed here
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...3#post12626203

    could you please give a step by step instruction on
    a. How to identify ; How does one know that his laptop is UEFI or some such scary four letter thingy and not the easy BIOS which just allows you to flick a function key and start a dual boot ?
    B. what to do : once identified a step by step instruction list on what to do ?
    c. The exchange above is all interesting but not a step by step for a novice like me ...so please help


    thanks in advance
