I downloaded and installed the upgrade the first time. Total disaster. Managed to get back into Win 7. Deleted the old Ubuntu and did a clean install. Still had the following problem I could boot into Ubuntu after the install I had checked the restricted driver and update while installing options. It took over an hour for the install from CD. I was in the desktop and configured a few things including setting the desktop for Gnome instead of Unity. When I shut down and tried to boot into Win 7 I could not do it. It would take me to Ubuntu. I did a code
. It found Ubuntu and Win 7. Shut Down and Rebooted the computer. No Grub Menu on boot up. I tried everything that I knew to try and get the Grub Menu to come up. Still no joy. I really needed to get back into Win 7 as I had some work to do and websites to take care of. So I went into code
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub.conf
I changed the Default on the menu to Win7 saved it and ran update grub again. Rebooted and the computer booted up without a grub menu, But because I had set the default to Win 7 it booted into win 7. Now I cant get a menu to get into Ubuntu. I have tried holding down the shift key the Esc key during boot in case the grub menu was somehow hidden even though I am duel booting. For single booting the grub menu is hidden by default. So I downloaded another ISO and burned it to CD. I formatted the Linux Partitions (ext4) and did a clean install using the defaults. Booted up and still no grub menu. had to edit the etc/default/grub again to set the default boot to win 7 to get back into it. Anyone else having the same problem? My Computer does have a Nvidia video card, but I am able to install the restricted drivers. I am sorry this is so long, But I try to be precise in my description of the problem. I know that this would be very frustrating for a new user or novice to Linux. Any suggestions.Mel
