Welcome to Linux.. while the start may feel a bit hard and confusing at first, if you continue using Linux, you'll know your way in rather no time...
You could do as TruongAn suggests.. Certainly when the linux install doesn't contain any important information to you..
One other way could be to boot from the boot cd and let grub (yes, it's grub instead of brub
) install itself to the hard disk again. for this (out of my head, sorry for any incompletenesses):
- insert boot disk in drive
- turn on computer / reboot
- type: 'linux rescue' and answer questions.. (let redhat find your installation
at the prompt, type "chroot /mnt/sysimage
", followed by "grub-install /dev/hda
note: hda if your disk is a 'normal' IDE disk, or sda if it is SCSI. ("fdisk -l
" can tell you which is right).
One thing that isn't clear is why you don't get the boot menu anymore, have you upgraded / reinstalled Windows after installing Linux? Because Windows overwrites the boot segment of the disk so at boot, Windows will start, and not grub.
--> If this all sounds too hard, go with the reinstall as suggested
