I got an ASUS M5A97. And i was going to dual boot windows/ubuntu, however, due to it being an UEFI bios, it brought some... "challenges".
On a regular installation, it just ends up loading windows boot loader and going straight to windows. I tried making an UEFI partition just for the loader and reinstalling ubuntu, it did actually install the boot loader there, and the motherboard tried to load it. However it wouldn't work, the motherboard wouldn't launch the loader at all and i had to repair system in windows 7 as just fixing the windows boot loader wouldn't even fix that, which makes me think that this motherboard when not using a compatible UEFI bootloader, it will load first boot loader it finds on the hard drive. And that happens to be the windows 7 one, I tried using EasyBCD to create a link to the ubuntu bootloader, but got nowhere.
Is there anyway to fix this? I do know this motherboard loads any linux boot loader fine, but all of the cases i seen were standalone, or at least i guess linux was first in order in partition list.
