  1. [ubuntu] Re: After MANY unsuccessful attempts, I shall try again..

    BUT in the recovery...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu on NP780Z5E-S01UB (UEFI) (Win 8 pre-installed)

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu on NP780Z5E-S01UB (UEFI) (Win 8 pre-installed)

    2. Delete the Ubuntu folder in my EFI folder on my SAMSUNG_REC partition.
    3. Delete Ubuntu...

    I go into my UEFI and select Windows Boot Manager to boot from, and there are 2 entries for this, and they both boot me into grub.

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu on NP780Z5E-S01UB (UEFI) (Win 8 pre-installed)

    Ok here's something interesting:

    I DON'T have the bkpbootmgfw.efi file in my EFI directory, BUT IN GRUB it says boot from that file, and it boots me into windows. Why can't I find the file though?
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu on NP780Z5E-S01UB (UEFI) (Win 8 pre-installed)

    I AM IN THIS DIRECTORY:

    C:\Windows\Boot\EFI

    The ONLY files I see are (other than folders):

    boot.stl
    bootmgfw.efi
    bootmgr.efi
    memtest.efi
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu on NP780Z5E-S01UB (UEFI) (Win 8 pre-installed)

    I have the bootmgfw.efi file in that directory from post 40. Where exactly do I need to copy it? And if I copy it over, will this boot windows directly?
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu on NP780Z5E-S01UB (UEFI) (Win 8 pre-installed)

    Through grub.
  21. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu on NP780Z5E-S01UB (UEFI) (Win 8 pre-installed)

  22. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu on NP780Z5E-S01UB (UEFI) (Win 8 pre-installed)

    So I should run boot repair, and select rename EFI files? And then restart the ocmputer? I think I hit the option to backup and rename AGAIN after I reinstalled ubuntu after deleting the partition....
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu on NP780Z5E-S01UB (UEFI) (Win 8 pre-installed)

    Well I previously deleted the ubuntu partition, and had to REINSTALL ubuntu to be able to boot back into windows. Will the rename efi files work since I did this?
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu on NP780Z5E-S01UB (UEFI) (Win 8 pre-installed)
