Dual Boot Not Happening

I have had a dual boot of Vista and XP for the longest time, I add Windows 7 to mix and no problem at all. The boot repair was supposed to fix GRUB issues when one cannot boot Ubuntu (see Boot-Repair in the Ubuntu documentation). Why? However, after installing Windows 7 we may find the original Windows 8 cannot start normally especially when they are installed on the same hard disk, and the largest reason may be have a peek at this web-site

I have XP Pro, Vista Ultimate and W7RC32 and they are all managed by the OS. If you open GParted from your pendrive ubuntu - what does it show? Therefore the boot Screen changes to VISTA "Yellow bars moving".Welcome Screen is Windows 7.I have reactivated the Windows again. If you want to install Windows from CD or DVD, make CD-ROM as the first boot device.

I reset it manually hoping this will not happen again.I guess you will suggest I do the load default settings, next..I am too scared of the consequences, lterally scared. Don't forget to save the settings (under the "Exit" screen) and your computer will reboot. Thank you for helping us maintain CNET's great community.

The image used to create a bootable USB device was not written properly to the device, or the method used in the image is not supported by your PC. At this time, the best solution is to convert the target disk to GPT. Creating a bootable USB stick is relatively easy with "Universal USB Installer". However, if Windows 7 and Windows 8 are installed on two different MBR disks, we should set boot order in BIOS the next time we are planning to start Windows 8,

And Partition E: had nothing. So I thought, that maybe bootloader of Ubuntu hasn't been installed. I am providing you with a link here on how to partition for Linux which is what Ubuntu is based on. Select Ubuntu from the "Select a Linux Distribution" drop down.
