New user needs advice

New user needs advice (Nevermind)

I'm very new to linux and this program. My situation is I just installed ubuntu to an external hard drive, and I want an easier method of choosing it at startup instead of having to interrupt startup and choose boot from USB.

Going from a tutorial I added a new entry: linux/bsd, type GRUB2, drive auto. After restarting the menu comes up, but it goes nowhere after selecting ubuntu. It loads GRUB4DOS.

Running windows 8 on my main drive.

edit: I reformatted/re-installed and it is working now for some reason.
