    Thanks, unfortunately that is not the log about your purge (which should contain "This setting will purge and reinstall"), please could you run Boot-Repair again, click "Advanced options", click the "Backup partition tables..." button, save the ZIP file somewhere, and attach this ZIP to your message ?

    Then reboot the PC, an check if something has changed. If not, run Boot-Repair's "Create BootInfo" and indicate your new URL, so that we know your current situation.

    Only thing I don't see in the Grub menu is Memtest but perhaps I could run that off a bootable cd if need be

    I am most grateful

    Good job!
    For information, your are now using grub-pc (not grub-efi), installed on sda's MBR and your BIOS-boot partition. The purge log is the 14h04 one in your ZIP.

    I just updated the PPA for efi, please could you:
    1) update Boot-Repair, run the Recommended repair, and indicate the new URL ? then reboot and check if something changed.
    Hello, I ticked the boot/efi option, but not the bios/grub option in Advanced Options, than ran boot-repair
    Please note the following URL: http://paste.ubuntu.com/994551/
    I will now see if something has changed during reboot
    Thanks

    @frncz:
    2) If not, let's try using BIOS-boot: first your current BIOS-boot partition has FAT32 filesystem, and i think it should have no filesystem, so if i were you i would recreate it (format it via a recent version of gParted using the "no filesystem" option, and bios_grub flag), then run B-R, click "Advanced options", go to the "GRUB location" tab, untick the "Separate /boot/efi" option, apply, and indicate the new URL. Reboot and indicate what you observe.
    Nothing has changed in the BIOS set-up options after trying suggestions 1 I will try suggestion 2.

    1) Please delete the /grub folder which is in your sda1 partition. (I think it appeared because you have previously used the "Separate /boot partition" option. please DO NOT USE this option, even if you want to use the BIOS-boot partition).
    2) Then reboot and try to make your BIOS boot on the sda2/EFI/grub/grub64amd.efi file. If still not good, i have no other idea for EFI, so i would try BIOS-boot (as described in post #405).

    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    One last question(i hope)

    I contacted the Motherboard manufacturer about the problems I had with the motherboard not recognizing my grub-efi after I changed the battery. He said that he thought the board was defective and should be returned. I am loath to take apart my computer and reinstall another motherboard, however if I did and it recognized the grub-efi partition would my system then work that way or would I need to remove the grub-pc you helped me set up. I doubt I will bother but it would help me decide
