    There's an Assist Button which then gives you the ability to boot into that partition, I would assume it is hardcoded into some of the hardware....I have a feeling if I move that partition...the...

    Turned SafeBoot on. Used the Live CD to go through the Boot-Repair dance again, and this time...everything works. I didnt check what Grub 2 had put in, only what you had requested!

    I will be unavailable for a few hours. After that, I will jump right back into this. Sorry for the delay. One thing, the zip file is almost 25mb...this exceeds the forum's limit....as well as I...

    "Windows UEFI loader" and "Windows Boot UEFI bootx64.efi.bkp" both boot Windows properly.

    I figured it was Windows monopolizing, but I was hoping, it would be beneficial in some way to the rest of us. And, wouldn't a live cd/usb, or hardware designed to copy data from one harddrive to...

    And, I believe there is nothing labeled Ubuntu UEFI in grub (when it was up).
