Installed ubuntu side by side with windows and now cant load windows
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 29, 2012
I went and downloaded ubuntu 12.10 today and burned it to a disk. Started the computer from the disk and installed Ubuntu from there and chose to install it with windows 7. Both are 64 bit. Now when I turn off the computer and try to load windows from the linux boot menu it just gives me a black screen saying error and then tells me to press ctrl + alt + delete and restarts the computer right back to the linux boot menu. I have tried the other partitions for windows recovery but it yields the same results. I can only load Ubuntu 12.10 for the OS. I can still access all my windows files from the hard drive. Every document and system file. I have tried going through the install disk but the only options are to erase and REinstall. Which is not what I want. Now I cant even get back into the install disk anymore, when I try to load it from the boot menu it just has a black screen and never loads. I have grown very impatient with this and as soon I get back on windows im deleting everything
installed fedora to other hard drive, now cant open windows or ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 26, 2009
I looked in the Fedora Forums and pretty much started feeling sick.
So I have 2 HDs, one with windows, the other with Ubuntu
I loaded Fedora to the hd with Windows and did nothing to ubuntu. Now I cant get into windows or ubuntu even after attempting to add those options to Fedoras menu.lst. I even tried changing the boot order of the HD's in bios but to no avail, that just gave me a grub cursor which I dont have the background to use. This exact thing happened to me awhile back but my old solution is failing me. Last time I added what was in my Ubuntu menu.lst to fedoras menu.lstand it worked well. Not so this time
This is my menu.lst from Ubuntu now, which has an I.D. number instead of (hdx,x)?
## should update-grub add savedefault to the default options

Installing Ubuntu Side by Side with Windows XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 21, 2012
hello Ubuntu Forums
I decided to install Ubuntu 11.10 as a dual boot option alongside my existing Windows XP OS. Now since i am new to partitions and dual booting i have certain doubts which halts my Ubuntu installation. I have 4 drives in my windows XP:c,d,e and f
Windows XP is installed on e drive ,its total size is 39 GB and free space is 16.9 GB. Now when i booted the live Ubuntu cd for installation and checked the install side by side option i was presented with the partition option of 50gb for windows and another 48 GB for Ubuntu
my doubt is from where does Ubuntu take up the 48 GB since it by default tries to create a partition in the windows drive? is it from the other drives?? And if i want proceed with the installation as per the Ubuntu partitioning option will any of my windows data get erased??
I have an F drive where i have 80 GB of free space. can i install Ubuntu in that drive without formatting the drive in windows as i have data which i don't want to lose

So after sucessfully installing Ubuntu 11.04 I actually was able to launch and use Ubuntu sucessfully a few times and windows was always shown and available.....well I had only installed the bare minimum install so I went back to try and install the feature rich ubuntu and now it will only let me log on to GNU which I am completely ignorant of and windows is nowhere to be found...I hope I've come to the right place for help.
I installed Ubuntu 10.10 alongside Windows 7, how do I get rid of Windows now?

I have an Acer Aspire One netbook and Windows 7 Starter on it, and I just finished installing Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook remix on it through a USB - alongside Windows - and now I want to get rid of Windows 7 Starter completely because I left too little space for Ubuntu and I'd rather just have 1 OS instead of wasting space and performance on another I don't want to use.
Here's a screenshot from Gparter open on my netbook, I'm not sure how to use it or which partition to change, please help?
Installing Ubuntu 12.04 with Windows installer
location: linux.com - date: September 23, 2012
I recently discovered a different way to install Ubuntu desktops through the windows Ubuntu installer. It worked for the latest version... no need for iso disk or usb stick. Of course you must have Windows installed on your computer... below is the link.
Some may have already heard about this, but as usual I am late in learning.

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 last night and when I reboot, my system goes directly to Windows 7. I checked this forum for similar problems and downloaded the boot info script. Here are the results.txt.
Thanks in advance for your help!

I can use terminal ,not fully though..installed all the available packages from synaptic package manager related to xen. But I am stuck here....Can not get xen up and running.Somebody please help to get along with this. Any step by step instruction or reference to a proper guide would be really appreciated.

Ok I ran into a problem now, I updated Ubuntu now and the updated kernel has removed the EasyBCD settings for dual booting and now once the system boots up, a cursor flashes in the top right hand corner and then boots straight into Ubuntu without showing any options for booting into Ubuntu or Windows!
Has this problem being fixed yet or are there any solutions to retrieve the original EasyBCD bootloading setup?
