Would you please tell me , How to repair Unbuntu Boot ?
i already have installed ubuntu 10.04 on my harddisk
but my computer only boot windows , like ubuntu is not there ????
there is no selection screen

please advise how to repair the boot only , to access Ubuntu

another i checked the forum , there is alot of explaination about
how to solve this problem , but with commands
and i lost in it , i can't figure out , how to do it by command

is there is any GUI program to fix boot problem

another thing How come that Ubuntu make a system with a repair for it

the big question is do i have to install it once again , instead of repair
the only boot problem ????


Please check and advise

... is there is any GUI program to fix boot problem ...

Quick answer -- NO. You will have to use the terminal (command line interface) to diagnose the problem and to fix it. IF you're not willing to learn terminal commands, you've chosen the wrong OS.

so why bother ubuntu to make GUI in it's OS in the first place

GUI is for flexibility and new user in OS in the world
and Commands also is for advanced users

be in my place , i'm in linux world and want to shift from F**kin Microsoft
and sure you know why ?
so i'm putting ubuntu in trail to know if it's work for me or not

and it's time to install and it's lost it's boot ???

what should i do ???????

at the end of bios process hold "shift" key down to see the grub menu (if it really installed)

grub2 might be installed on ubuntu partition (ie /dev/sd?, "?" is a letter, you might have noted it when formatting)

sudo grub-install --root-directory=your-ubuntu-partition

then

sudo grub-mkconfig && update-grub

open a terminal and copy and paste this:

sudo update-grub
