    Ubuntu 12.04 not booting after installation

    I installed Ubuntu 12.04 alongside Windows XP through a USB drive using Universal USB installer. But after finishing the installation my computer boots straight to Windows XP without giving the choice of booting to Ubuntu. When I go to the list of installed operating systems it only shows Windows XP.

    Except from the fact that the computer didn't boot into Ubuntu

    If Windows was the missing one the command would have worked.
