My hard drive is failing. I installed a new drive, and the installed Ubuntu 12.04 to try to rescue data. Realized that I wanted to install Windows and just access drives without transferring data (there are loads of it).
I then installed Windows 7. Now my drive only boots to Windows 7.
How do I access Linux and make Windows boot-loader load Linux? I originally thought I would just not use the Ubuntu installation but now I think I want it to be a dual boot system.
What are good boot-loaders to install for this kind of dual boot situation? Can I accomplish this with
If I would have done this the other way (Windows first, then Linux) everything would be fine, but I didn't and now I'm trying to fix this.
The problem I have is that I don't really know how to boot into Linux to retrieve any files I need. I guess using the disc would work, but I'm not sure how to go about this.
