Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

I recently installed a few operating systems in the following order:


After I had installed Ubuntu, the bootloader showed the various ways I can boot Ubuntu and it also showed the windows I had installed previously. However, after I installed the final windows, the linux bootloader seems to have been overridden.

I have noticed that Windows cannot recognize the formatting used by Linux, and if it is a Windows bootloader I am using, it might also not be recognizing the Linux system I have installed. Is there a way where I can get the bootloader to show Linux so that I can use it, or is there an actual loader that I can download and use?

Thanks in advance,

Yep - The windows boot loader only boots windows. Your best bet is to install Linux again - Fingers crossed it will see both Windows installations, if not it not too difficult to add them.
