View Full Version : [ubuntu] Not able to boot Ubuntu after updates

May 22nd, 2014, 09:00 PM
I recently installed the regular Ubuntu updates. After installation was done, it asked me to restart my computer. After restarting, i wasnt able to access the Ubuntu partition. Previously, Ubuntu was my default OS. But now, it boots windows 8 by default. When i went to the boot manager to boot it manually, Ubuntu didnt show up there. So i cant even start it up in recovery mode.
I use Ubuntu 13.04, and did not do anything other than install the regular updates. I use a Dell Inspiron 15, and windows 8 came pre-installed with it.
I am a newbie in Linux, so not too familiar with its working. Only been using it for 6 months. So, i would appreciate the help in getting it back up and running, or atleast getting my saved data from it.
