Ok i recently partitioned my hard drive from containing only a single partition from Windows xp pro, into 2 partitions. I installed linux os 2007 on the other partition. It was all good except now that i when i restart my computer, it does not ask me which to boot, and it automatically attempts to boot windows....but when it tries to boot windows, i get the blue screen and my computer restarts....can anyone help me?
