I installed Windows7 on my new netbook (x121e ThinkPad) and then installed Ubtuntu 11.04 afterwards, but grub won't load after startup and windows always starts immediatly. I already did such a setup on my PC successfully, with the only difference that I encrypted my home partition on my netbook. Is there any problem doing this using grub?

Perhaps post your current GRUB configuration? –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Oct 30 '11 at 17:51
I cannot even figure out where grub is installed, running grub-probe -t device /boot/grub just gives back the error cannot stat 'aufs' –  Sim Oct 30 '11 at 18:05
and running sudo fdisk -l just shows one partition which system is GPT –  Sim Oct 30 '11 at 18:08
