Unable to install Ubuntu 12.04 with Windows 7

I have Windows 7x64 installed on my Lenovo G580 right now. I want to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop. I made a bootable USB using unetbootin and tried to install Ubuntu. It installed correctly( I formatted a partition which i made specifically for ubuntu with 10GB Swap area and 20 GB for main Ubuntu installation).

After restarting i am not getting select os menu rather windows 7 starts directly

When I browse my HDD in windows 7 (My Computer-Properties-Disk Management), I'm unable to locate my hdd in which i installed Ubuntu, it just shows my other two drives thats C and D drive, the E drive which i used is not visible.

Anyone please Help i need to install Ubuntu urgently

You need to follow a specific set of steps to get the boot menu to appear, but lets first take a look at your disk management screen. Can you post a screen capture image of it here?
