So I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my second hard drive, leaving my primary C drive with Win7. After that, I was supposed to be able to go into BIOS and set up the boot order to dual-boot both OS's. As the subject line says, I can't get into BIOS for some reason.
Now, before anyone jumps to conclusions, yes, I pressed the correct button to get into BIOS at the POST screen (I built the computer and I overclock, that should tell you that I know my way around). For whatever reason, after installing Ubuntu, the thing won't recognize that I kept pressing the DEL button to enter BIOS. It'll just boot up straight into Win7. After seeing that I made a mistake in partitioning my 2nd drive for Ubuntu, I decided to delete everything on that drive and just start over again. Lo and behold, I can access BIOS again. Just weird.
I'm guessing there's something to do with my mobo and the Ubuntu bootloader that's not quite getting along, but I can't think of what or why. I mean, BIOS is completely isolated from either OS's and so's the POST, so why is this happening? Hopefully someone here has the answer and the fix?
Mobo is Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 (1.0) BIOS version is F10 (I'd like to avoid flashing to a newer one, if I can).
