[Lucid] no GRUB menu entry for other operating systems
|||Release Notes for Ubuntu||
Nominated for Lucid by Dooitze de Jong
When installing in a dual boot environment, the other operating system will not appear at first in the GRUB menu. Installing the available updates and rebooting will fix this issue.
Original report follows:
Binary package hint: ubiquity
Installed 10.04 amd64 in a VM with WinXP pre-installed. I chose a dual boot install with each OS having 50% of the disk space.
After install and reboot, however, I noticed that grub does not have a menu entry for Windows at all.
I checked the partition table and XP is still there, so perhaps I could manually fix this, however, the problem remains that my side-by-side install fails because Grub did not create a boot entry for Windows.
