View Full Version : [kubuntu] XP and Kubuntu

October 8th, 2009, 11:50 PM

Okay here's my situation..

I have two hard drives and then my terabyte (The terabyte is always disabled during my installs due to it carrying vital information.) The two HDD's are 160GB each.

I have XP installed on my 160 Primary.
I found out I really liked Kubuntu to I was going to install that on my secondary..

I get through the Kubuntu install and I reboot, but it still boots to XP.

No GRUB boot loader whatsoever.

What am I doing wrong?

You might need to boot from the second hdd with Kubuntu. Check the boot order in the BIOS.

I figured out my issue with a couple of links..

GRUB wasn't chosen on ANY of my drives.

So I went and told GRUB where to go.

With the help of these links, I was able to figure it out:
