Hello,

I recently installed ubuntu linux alongside windows, everytime I boot my pc it goes directly to ubuntu, do I need to edit GRUB bootloader or the MBR to get an option to boot to windows or linux??

Thanks for the link, I try running the command sudo apt-get install startupmanager but it tells me "E: Unable to locate package startupmanager"

Kind of depends on the state of the system.

How do you know you still have some windows to boot to?

Did you use wubi to install ubuntu or did you boot to a cd/dvd?

Hang up and live.

Did you boot to the cd or did you use windows to install ubuntu with a program called wubi?

Hello again,

I am looking in the grub.cfg file and see the following

Found Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda2
menuentry "Windows 7 (loader) (on/dev/sda2)" --class windows --class os {
insmod part_msdos
insmod ntfs
set root='hd0,msdos2)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 1E7CC12C7CC0FF8F
chainloader +1
}

researching chainloading now any tips on how to boot windows would be appreciated thank you guys
