    In your bootmgr.jpg, you have two ubuntu entries. If you move ubuntu to the top, it should default to booting to the grub menu. Not sure why Ubuntu & ubuntu or what difference is?

    But bootmgr.jpg is what I get when I press F9... I.e. It is only a temporary boot selection. That screen doesnt allow me to permanently change the boot order, and the ubuntu option doesn't show up in the bios boot settings where I can permanently change the order.

    Following the UEFI screen takes me to this page that your system configuration is the correct screen. You do have the UEFI boot order settings. If you click on those what happens? Does it open more, or allow changes?

    Nevermind, I just took the laptop back and got a full refund.

    This new EFI **** is not worth the trouble. I've been dual booting windows and Linux for a good while on previous machines and it has never been an issue - there's no way in hell I'm going to spend 3 weeks just trying to get the OSes to behave nicely with one another.
