    Re: Troubbleshouter for EFI invalid path

    These are the possibility offered by the BIOS/UEFI menu:

    Window Boot Manager (P0: Hitachi HTSXXXX) (1)
    Ubuntu (P1: Hitachi HTS XXXXXXXX) (2)
    idem except P1 replace by P0 (3)
    idem except P0 replace by P1 (4)
    P2 MATSHITABD-CMD UJ160 (5) my second drive I believe
    Enter Setup

    (2) = (3) and the three ubuntu have the same HD. Doubt for the Windows one, it should be different will edit next time I go back there.

    The order of priority for booting is the same as above except that window come in second position.

    Boot-repair does not repair with normal options. I want to try it following the second example of dual boot, the one where the OP wrote a step-by-step process after he succeed.

    For the EFI install in the sda1, I am wondering: I am sure to have selected sdb as the device for the bootloader but as mentionned in my previous post I feel like my partition sdb1 which I had planned to be a EFI booting one has failed since it is not similar as the one for Windows; the ubuntu booting files might be the ones installed by my first installation of ubuntu.

    I keep reading/trying, Thank you for your support, I feel less alone -_-

    BTW I love Chicago (went twice)
    have you vote yet?

    Re: Troubbleshouter for EFI invalid path

    Have you tried booting with each of the entries?

    My wife & went to vote this morning, no lines except if wanting to use the video mode. Then out for breakfast which do only do occasionally.

    Standard process is paper with fill-in circles and scanner to read. One advantage of paper is the paper trail & when scanned it will tell you some basic errors like two entries or missing entry and let you fix or accept as is (vote for that candidate will not count).
    I go back to the days of arguing over whether the X on a paper ballot was inside the box as required. If outside some argued intention, but rules were inside only. But then they argued over X on the lines of the box. Someone is always unhappy with the results and wants to make waves.

    YES!

    After a nice sleep, I did it! As far as I see, it is working fine.

    Thank you Oldfred for your kind support and advice, I would have not succeed alone!

    The all powerful thread, solution for dual boot on double disk:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2031836

    It is indeed the indexation of the W7 bootloader that is not correct and need to be added as described above. All that I still could do is to remove the wrong entries in the grub2 menu for aesthetics.

    still don't believe it! I learn a lot again, thx!

    Voting is kinda complex in the USA ^^ and very often waves about cheating. In France we are still paper election so we do not really know if there are frauds

    See you!

    Question Re: Troubbleshouter for EFI invalid path

    Good job

    Logs indicate you have only used the "Create BootInfo" button of Boot-Repair. Did you try the "Recommended Repair" button? if yes, please could you indicate the URL that appeared?

    EDIT: i think this was a bug introduced in the boot-repair3.194~ppa50 package. I fixed it today.

    Re: Troubbleshouter for EFI invalid path

    Glad it worked.

    Yann's Boot-Repair fixes two standard issues with UEFI installs.

    One is where users install in BIOS mode. Boot-Repair will un-install grub-pc and install grub-efi and update fstab so it is correct UEFI install.

    The other is the bug in grub2's os-prober that puts in a BIOS/MBR chain load entry to Windows. Boot-Repair will automatically add the correct chain entries back to the efi Windows boot loader.

    If you do not want the os-prober you can turn it off so you do not get the old wrong entries, or back on later if you add more systems and want another update.

    In /etc/default/grub I added this, change back to false if you want to run it again:

    gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub

    GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=true

    or turn off executeable bit
    sudo chmod a-x /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober

    Then run
    sudo update-grub
