    Still shows ext4 for swap?
    Did you not click on the green check mark to run the changes in gparted?

    Is this an older computer? Or do you have BIOS set for hard drive in IDE mode, not AHCI or large or LBA?
    Some old BIOS or one's in IDE mode that emulates the old BIOS, do not boot correctly from partitions over 137GB. You either have to have a separate /boot or just make / (root) smaller, so it is fully inside the 137GB limit and use rest of drive as /home or as a data partition. I prefer / of 20 to 25GB and use rest for /home or data.

    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in one click

    Hi, I've been happily running Ubuntu 13 dual boot with Windows 8 using GRUB. Today I updated Ubuntu to 14.04 any my GRUB menu has disappeared with my laptop booting directly into Windows 8. I've tried various iterations of Boot Repair with no joy - I can't get GRUB back. Here's my pastebin entry: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7354460

    I've done all the obvious things such as turning fastboot off etc

    Help please!

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I know that grub always used to have trouble installing on systems with Intel SRT. You show a sda6 with Intel SRT. Not sure how it works when still on same hard drive.
    But Ubuntu/grub would see SRT as RAID and not want to correctly install.

    I might try turning off the Intel SRT also, and then reinstall grub.

    You show this entry.

    Boot0006* ubuntu.

    Are you able to select in from UEFI menu? Or is that still the old version of grub and does not work?

    Thanks for the reply. I've now disabled SRT and have run Boot Repair again (using Recommended repair). New pastebin: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7354969/

    Still no GRUB menu after reboot, still booting straight to Windows 8!

    I'm on a Toshiba Portege, there's no option to select a particular HDD/SDD in the UEFI menu..

    I really don't want to have to wipe my whole system and reinstall, but it's looking like that might be the only option.. I'd even settle for a manual way to boot into ubuntu for now!!

    Thanks

    You do have grub in the protective MBR for BIOS boot, but are configured for UEFI boot. So do not boot with BIOS mode.
    If secure boot is on, only systems installed with secure boot will be shown in UEFI menu. It does look like you have signed kernel, so it should boot even with secure boot on. Have you turned secure boot off?

    Some others alternatives.

    some find this changing this to be shim or grub /EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi
    Then the booting device or hard drive boots to grub also.

    Secure boot is definitely off. The whole setup worked perfectly with the previous ubuntu version.

    Did you change UEFI to boot an ubuntu entry with old install. Ubuntu/grub does not change itself to be default normally, although any maintenance in Windows seems to change it to be default with UEFI.
    Or were you booting with BIOS with UEFI off or BIOS/CSM/Legacy on, and then only booting Windows from UEFI menu with UEFI on.

    Nope it's always been UEFI. The first time I've booted into Windows was today to try and fix the issue.
    All of the problems started because grub was working after install but with this error https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...2/+bug/1289977
    Running boot repair then stopped grub working completely

    Some need to totally reinstall grub.
    Boot-Repair has a chroot and total uninstall and reinstall of grub.

    Or you chroot into system and run this:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc
    #Enter thru first pages,spacebar to choose/unchoose drive, enter to accept, do not choose partitions

    Newest user in bug report just added a color entry to script, but it is mostly version conflicts where grub did not correctly install/reinstall.
