How to enter from Grub>

Asked by Daniel Fernandez on 2011-04-22

Hi all, I am newbie in using Ubuntu. On my computer I have partitioned the hard drive with two operating systems, Windows 7 and the Ubuntu version 11.04. I would like to use Ubuntu but always and exclusively the case that I am Civil Engineer and structural calculation programs I use do not have Linux versions. So when I'm not working using the Ubuntu. Although I have little experience in using Linux, I've done well with the two configurations.

After this introduction, I explain the problem being in a program called Ubuntu install Grub Customizer to configure the way it presents the screen where you select which operating system we want to start. Anyway you accidentally delete the lines to choose Ubuntu and I can only Windows 7, so when you turn the computer only gives me the line to choose Windows 7 and not those of Ubuntu, the only thing that gives me options in the seconds before to choose is to press "c" and I get a screen with a line that says grub>, my question is whether there is a way to get Ubuntu from here?, if I choose or pass enters the second Windows 7 without problems.
I guess if there is, but due to my lack of experience in Linux know the procedure to follow ......

Thanking in advance for your coloboraciĆ³n .......

until then

Daniel Fernandez

You can use your ubuntu (live-)CD to repair this:

 * boot from it (as you did, before) installing it
 * install grub customizer (same procedure as on your installed system)
 -> now you can choose your linux partition and then re-checking the linux entry/script. After saving and rebooting, the linux entry should appear

Thanks for your response. I have a question, I have the Live Cd 10.04 but updated to version 11.04, I can use the cd version 10.04?

Thanks

Yes, this should work.

Can you help with this problem?
