View Full Version : [ubuntu] Boot Ubuntu having installed windows xp

June 27th, 2009, 05:55 PM
I have Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows xp. One day, a virus attacked my computer, so, this time I decided to format my windows. When I installed it again, the menu with both operating systems didn't appear.

I am SURE Ubuntu it's still in my computer, but I don't know how to make it launch first (then, I will be able to choose what OS I want)

please help me and sorry for my english :), Javier.

note: I'm asking from Ubuntu Live CD...

You need to reinstall GRUB boot loader, can be done from the live cd.

Or you can change the boot.ini in Windows XP
