Problem dual-booting


I am already running Xubuntu 11.04 on a 160 GiB hard drive and i wanted to dual-boot Macpup 525. So i made another 50 GiB primary partition with a Ext4 at /dev/sda3.

I installed Macpup to /dev/sda3 and rebooted the system. But when the system did reboot i was only able to boot into Xubuntu. There was no mention of Macpup? Can anyone help me please.

Try going into terminal and doing this:

Code:
sudo grub-update
Watch as the grub menu is updated and see if it discovers your other operating system. If it does, do a ceremonious reboot and you should see the grub menu with choices including your other O/S.

HTH,
