    On my Dell laptop, that came with Windows 7, I added a new partition and then installed Ubuntu. When I reboot, the Paragon Boot Manager only shows the Windows 7 boot option. What can I do to boot Linux?

    My partition setup is as follows:
    Primary partition 39.1 MB (Dell Utility)
    Primary partition 2.3GB (RECOVERY)
    Extended partition 116.4GB
    Logical partition 63.7 GB (Windows C:)
    Logical partition 52.7 GB (Windows D:)
    Primary partition 114 GB (----> LINUX)

    Please try the following:
    * boot to Windows, run Paragon program in Full Scale launcher
    * go to Tools - Setup Boot Manager aтв uninstall Boot Manager completely.
    Then restart and check if GRUB or LILO (Linux boot manager) appears.

    Actually, Linux boot manager usually is installed automatically and it automatically finds and adds Windows OSes found on the hard drive.
