I've got Windows 7, Ubuntu and FreeBSD installed on one separate partitions on one harddrive. When I boot, I only have the option to choose Ubuntu or Windows 7. After a successful FreeBSD install, it does now show in the GRUB.
I've loaded into both Ubuntu and Windows and they're in fact labeled correctly and pointing to the correct partition and displaying the correct operating system without any flaws or issues.
Here is the data I have accumulated so far during this process.
1.) OPERATING SYSTEM PROGRESSION
I first started with Windows 7. Then as a programmer I wanted to learn Linux, so I added Ubuntu. Within the installation of Ubuntu, it allowed me to "Change" my main partition without having to go into Computer/Disc Management in Administrative Tools in Windows. So that was convenient I changed my partition and re-sized it on the spot to allow room for Ubuntu. It worked great and before you knew it I was typing and memorizing terminal command lines. It felt great. A lot of things I do like with GitHub and other SSH routines make much clearer sense to me now.
So, feeling that good vibe of feelings, I thought how cool would it be to be able to relate to some of those really old school database / IT guys while having a cigarette or coffee of whatever. Let's give Unix a try. Why not right?
2.) BOOT OPTIONS BEFORE UBUNTU AND AFTER UBUNTU
In the past if I've had two versions of windows, E.G. Windows XP and Widows 7 installed, I'd have an option to "Load Previous Version of Windows" or load "Windows 7" with a 30 second countdown before it chose the first choice.
Now after installing Ubuntu, I guess I'm now experiencing the "GRUB?" It shows loading Ubuntu first, Advanced Ubuntu options, Memtest and Memtest(86) and lastly, Windows 7 at the bottom with a, I believe, 10 second count down.
3.) HOW I ADDED MY FREEBSD PARTITION
I was going to boot into Windows 7 and use the Computer/Disk Management and remove some space from my Windows partition, but I only had 20GB left on the Windows partition since I gave my Ubuntu partition half of my hard drive (doh.) When I tried to split the Ubuntu partition, everything related to splitting, expanding, or anything to that regard was grayed out. Then I remembered the options the Ubuntu installation disc gave me. The "modify" option. So I did just that. I now had access to change the Ubuntu partition within the Ubuntu install disc. I modified it, and split it in half, giving my partition allocated for FreeBSD 50 sweet GBs.
4.) WHAT MAY BE CAUSING THE ISSUE? I NEED HELP HERE.
So when I modified the partition in the Ubuntu installer (which I exited after modifying the partition,) I never formatted the partition. Unless the Ubuntu installer gives a default filing system during modification, I don't know how it was formatted. When I installed FreeBSD onto it, it seemed to be happy and installed fine. I loaded up network drivers, added my wifi password. Created root accounts and non-root accounts and a few other things.
My bootloader, which is now covered over to the new GRUB, does not list FreeBSD or any indication that I have another partition with another operating system on it and in order in having any shot with bonding with the Unix guys, I am going to need your help. Thanks for your expertise.
