View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu booting option not available in dual boot system

November 5th, 2012, 02:12 AM

I installed Ubuntu 12.10 using a USB drive in a PC that already had Windows 7 installed on it. However, when I boot the system, instead of being provided an option to choose to boot using either of the two OS, Windows always starts up. I did some search and based on a solution I found on net, booted the system using my USB again and tried installing grub customizer. But this also does not seem to help. Can you please help me get this opening menu that would help allow a dual boot scenario?
