    You are showing this:

    Did you have RAID on this drive? Ubuntu did not used to install at all to drives with left over meta-data.
    Oops - I sure did have this drive on a RAID array at one time. I went back and removed the meta data from this drive, then re-ran the Boot-Repair program, and everything works fine now! I should have caught that; but thanks for pointing it out! Makes me wonder how I installed the OS in the first place...

    At least one got solved.

    It used to be that Ubuntu would not install if the RAID metadata was seen. I think that the new version 12.10 may start including RAID drivers as they are doing away with the alternative installer. Not sure in 12.04 how it worked.

    You'll see indications of both GPT and MBR behavior. Both OS X and Kubuntu are running in EFI and are GPT-aware. Windows 8 is running in BIOS and is blissfully ignorant of the GPT disk. Each operating system can be booted directly, and none of them chainload any other. I'm not using rEFIt/rEFInd but prefer to use the stock, simple Apple boot manager.
    Interesting! So when booting the PC, you see the Apple bootmanager that gives you 3 choices?
    --------------------> MacOS
    --------------------> Windows
    --------------------> grub-efi --> Ubuntu

    What is that for?

    @Shoushouwhatwhat
    Does Windows boot from UEFI menu directly?
    I have opened up a new thread as requested:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...5#post12399325

    @ oldfred
    I actually didn't know that we could boot from UEFI menu, I thought it was just for setting changes to booting. How do we boot from UEFI menu directly?

    Not going to start my own thread because the problem has been fixed - by turning off secure boot and re-running boot-repair; a bunch of new stuff was installed, and it finally worked after that. But now I have no secure boot... but I don't care.

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

    @all:
    quick explanations about how to use Boot-Repair on UEFI systems:


    First of all, try the "Recommended Repair" button.
    - B-R will automatically detect if grub-pc or grub-efi (or grub Legacy) is needed
    - if grub-efi is needed, it will automatically detect if a signed boot is needed or not (SecureBoot)
    - by default, the "Backup and rename EFI files" option is ticked. As explained here, this option duplicates grubx64.efi in 2 places: /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi and /EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi . This allos to be sure that the BIOS will boot into GRUB at next reboot, even if the BIOS doesn't allow to boot on /efi/ubuntu/grubx64.efi , and by commodity this avoids the user to modify the BIOS. Of course, if these files already existed, B-R renames them first (by adding them a .bkp extension).

    After the Recommended Repair, the user reboots its PC, and sees the GRUB menu with access to Ubuntu, and generally 2 additional entries:
    - Windows UEFI (/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi.bkp)
    - Windows Boot UEFI ( /EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi.bkp)

    Generally, these 2 entries boot Windows without any problem.

    But on some systems, they don't boot Windows. Example: http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic...9311#p11879311 . In this case, here is what to do:
    1) if your PC has/had Windows8 preinstalled, go into the BIOS, and , if possible, disable the SecureBoot and the QuickBoot. Then redo the Recommended Repair of Boot-Repair. This often works (example: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=686 ).
    If still none of the 2 Windows entries work, continue next steps.

    2) restorer the bkp via Boot-Repair --> Advanced options --> untick "Backup and rename EFI files" --> tick "Restore EFI backups" --> Apply . This will restore the 2 bkp files to their original place (/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi et /EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi ) , and this will update the 2 Windows entries in GRUB:
    - Windows UEFI (/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi)
    - Windows Boot UEFI ( /EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi)

    3) then reboot the PC. If the BIOS hadn't been changed (it is setup to boot on /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi or /EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi ), this will directly boot Windows.

    4) then setup the BIOS so that it boots on the Ubuntu entry (/efi/ubuntu/grubx64.efi) . This will make the GRUB menu appear, with access to Ubuntu and the 2 Windows entries:
    - Windows UEFI (/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi)
    - Windows Boot UEFI ( /EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi)

    5) If you can't boot Windows via these GRUB entries, but that you can boot Windows directly via the Windows entry of the BIOS, then it is probably a security of Windows that doesn't like to be booted via GRUB , in this case I can't do anything, and you need to setup your BIOS each time you want to boot another OS.


    (FYI, i have just started a new job after 1 year of unemployment, so I may have less time to help FOSS users)
