Dual Booting

I am using a dell M1530. I am using a partitian at 150gb and using Ubuntu 150gb. A question I have is that I can't seem to select which one when loading, it loads right into 7. I have the most updated BIOS A12. How do I make it let me select which os to load into?

Any way I can do it with Ubuntu already installed?

I installed it the second way, but when I boot, I get no "Grub 2 Boot Loader". it gives me no option, it just loads Windows 7.

I installed it into a partian just like it said there and in the boot menu, Windows 7 is the only one I have to choose from.
