View Full Version : [ubuntu] Before I upgrade to 11.04?

I currently have 10.10 Dual Booting (selection via Grub Menu) with Windows 7, if I select to upgrade to 11.04 via the Update Manager on 10.10, I assume it will leave the boot options the same?

Ie the grub menu will still appear and allow me to select between Ubuntu or Windows 7?

Thanks

Yes, that is the expected result.

Please note that the Ubuntu servers are swamped right now, so the upgrade can take a long time (or even fail with time-outs). Might want to wait a few days...

Also - you can load Natty/11.04 and still use the 'Classic’ UI: Natty Info: Your UI options (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1741293)

THANK YOU, Hedge! For a few horrible minutes there I thought I was stuck in Win 7 mode. You should post that warning as a separate thread to let people know there's an easy alternative to the new launcher. I like my simple panels and found the "Windows envy" setup appalling.
