    I was wondering if any of you know how to change the dual screen when the computer starts up, as Ubuntu does not appear in the option, only Vista and "older versions of windows" appear, but for some reason Ubuntu isn't there anymore.
    This is how I installed, I had 3 partitions in the HD.
    First, widnows XP came installed with the computer, then with ubuntu and some tools i repartitioned the HD in 3, 1 for XP, one for common files as FAT32, and the other one for Ubuntu. That was working fine, I had in the boot screen the choice between XP and Ubuntu. Then came Vista, that partition that was empty, the common ground for XP and Linux, i reformated it to NTFS so it could take Vista.
    Then I installed Vista, and now the only OSs appearing in the boot screen are Vista and "older versions of windows". Does anyone know how to change this so as to have Vista, XP and Ubuntu in there?
    Thank you very much for your answers.
