Alright guys, I need some critical help. I just installed Ubuntu 8.04 on my home desktop, attempting to dual boot My vista 64bit business. I was following this guide:
http://apcmag.com/how_to_dualboot_vista ... _first.htm
It was fairly straight forward and basically said partition and install, the grub boot loader would take care of the rest. I already had a partition set aside when I first set up my computer, so i just threw in my disc and got started.
OK, my partition I had originally set aside was 250gb, and I decided it would be overkill, so I used a guided partition that took 50Gb from my vista partition and would make that my Linux partition, I figured I would just reallocate the other 250gb partition later. The install went smoothly and I just rebooted a few minutes ago. Here comes the problem.
The grub boot loader doesn't give me the vista boot option, only 3 linux options, the regular boot, recovery boot, and something else. I really need some help. I know very little about this kind of thing and have only used basic command line things. I don't really know what information or files to post that show information.
i know the partitions are still there and haven't changed, they are listed under places in linux and i can access them. Please someone help me get my vista back...
