View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installed windows... Grub disappeared

June 9th, 2008, 01:43 AM

I believe this is not the first time someone posts this, but I am not finding it.

I installed Windows as a backup OS since not everyone here at home is Linux friendly. However, when I reinstalled it, the computer automatically logs in windows without shwing grub as it used to do so.

Can anyone help me how to configure grub (or boot log, dunno) to load when I turn on the computer, through windows?

Thanks is advance!

Just happened to me yesterday for other reasons. If you still have Ubuntu somewhere, and you just lost grub, then use supergrub. Very easy and it worked for me. Google "super grub", download ISO, burn, reboot, follow instructions to GNU/LINUX>Fix Boot of GNU/Linux
