Hi, need help regarding linux installation
I am new to this community, and to linux, so I hope you will forgive my lack of know-how in this area, and how things go around here :/
So here is my question (apparantly, I can't post into a more relevant category due to priviledge limitation , so here goes.
I am a typical Windows user, and I have both Windows 8 and Windows 7 installed - on separate partitions (Windows 7 because Windows 8 gives some problems with some software and drivers). I now need to install two Linuxes - Ubuntu (12.1) and Redhat (server 6.2) for educational purposes. I have DVD's for both these OS, and know how to install them separately.
The problem is, I installed Ubuntu first, and then installed RedHat Enterprise 6.2 next. Naturally, I made separate partitions for them. However, when Redhat finished installing and when I rebooted, I couldn't see Ubuntu anywhere. The boot loader gives two options, one for RHEL 6.2, and the other labelled "Other", which goes into the Windows boot menu and gives options for Windows 8 or Windows 7. Can't find Ubuntu anywhere.
I deleted the Redhat partition, and then repaired my Windows 7 to reset the bootloader to Windows. But still, there was no option for booting ubuntu. So i deleted the partition for Ubuntu as well (since it was of no use to me).
Please tell me how can I install both the Linuxes at the same time, while keeping the Windows OS in tact? Please help.
Thank you in advance :)
