Ubuntu: Ubuntu installed successfully but not booting


I have installed Ubuntu on my lappy alongside with Windows7 on DriveE (windows is in DriveC). when installing ubuntu it didn't ask any thing it ask only whether you want to install alongside with windows. I selected that option. there was message that installation was successful. After restarting it directly boots to windows it's not asking to select os and driveE which i have installed ubuntu is not visible.

please give solution to my problem

You can use live disk & boot-repair tool to perform a Recommended Repair.
