Right now I have two hard drives in my computer. The first, my samsung spinpoint is running windows 7 hp. The second is an old laptop hdd running ubuntu 12.04 lts. I successfully installed ubuntu onto the hdd but when i restart the computer it wouldnt bring up the screen letting my choose which one to boot into like if i had partitioned the hdd out. Is there anyway I can boot into the secondary harddrive at boot up? Or should I try installing it to the drive through wubi? BTW the drive is a 120gb toshiba.
I don't know if all BIOS have a boot selector, but with my Gigabyte motherboard I just hit F12 repeatedly at the BIOS splashscreen and then the boot selector shows up. My other computer with an ASRock motherboard, I hit F11 repeatedly to bring up the boot selector. The selector allows me to choose either of the hard drives or the DVD drive as the booting device.
