So, I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 and then Windows 8 on my laptop, which runs UEFI. Both installations went fine, but it boots straight to Windows without the grub loader opening to let me select my OS.
So I installed boot-repair and ran the recommended repair from an Ubuntu Live Session and that went smoothly and finished without errors.
But grub still doesn't load automatically, and instead, Windows just boots. If I press F9 at start up it enters the boot device options, and there's an option there for something to do with Ubuntu, and when I select that, it then loads Grub from which I can boot from either Windows or Ubuntu. But this grub menu does not load automatically - so perhaps it's the case that my grub loader is on the wrong partition or something like that?
Anyway, I'd like to set Ubuntu to the default OS and I'd like to have my grub menu appear by default when I startup instead of having to press F9 to manually select a different boot device.
Here's my pastebin from boot-repair: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5640845/
Any help greatly appreciated!!
