  7. [ubuntu] Re: Windows 8/Ubuntu 12.10 dual install--boot repair issues

    I unmarked the secure boot in the grub options. (Purge grub before reinstalling it is also unchecked.) Do you want me to run it with secure boot checked then? even though secure boot is off in BIOS?
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Windows 8/Ubuntu 12.10 dual install--boot repair issues
