Hello, I am trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 next to windows 7 via wubi installer on my mums Dell PC, and Ubuntu is being installed correctly except that Ubuntu is not in the windows boot manager, so it automatically goes into windows. I have gone into 'msconfig' and that says nothing about ubuntu.

Does anyone know how I can add it to the windoows boot manager?

thanks for help Jason

'bcedit' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

what am I doing wrong?

thanks brenmer what you mean by RTFM?

If you are going to seriously get into Linux you are going to have to master the command line.

It will mean doing research around commands either through the Internet or from manuals. A simple misplaced character will result in an error message. You will need to be patient and double check what you type, this is part of the learning process but most of all RTFM.

There's problems with 11.04 (see here), so try 10.10.
