Hey everyone! So I clean installed W7 earlier this week. I then tried to install Ubuntu 8.10 to a totally free space (40gb) on the same drive; my c: drive. the Ubuntu install itself went off without a hitch! however... whenever I boot my computer, grub/ubuntu are totally ignored and W7 boots right up. if I try to use SuperGRUB to get to the OS list, I can get to grub BUT I get an error when I try to boot Ubuntu. the W7 boot loader seems to totally ignore/not wish to list Ubuntu at all... anyone think it has anything to do with the 200mb recovery partition that W7 seems to make on the c: drive? help? =/ any and all input would be extremely appreciated. cheers! - Tristan - PS - *UBUNTU for the thread topic. see where being in a hurry gets you? =[ haha Kyle: Fixed it for you.
