Hi, I have ubuntu 10.10 on a portable hard drive (60GB) that I use to boot different laptops (not necessarily my own, but mine, too). I can boot via the bios, but I would like to use easybcd and boot from a regular boot menu. The problem is that this drive does not have a drive letter associated with it, so windows (7, 32 bit) does not see it. In easybcd when I try to add its entry it does seem to be present, but when I reboot, ubuntu will not come up, and the entry points to Cdrive (where windows lives). Am I doing something wrong? Will the drive still be bootable if I assign a drive letter to it? It boots fine if it is the first drive in the list of boot choices... Thanks for any help.
