I'm trying to create a dual boot of Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.04.2 on my ASUS N56VJ notebook. I followed this guide to the letter. The Boot-Repair "Recommended repair" seems to run fine, and doesn't give me an error or troubleshooting URL (which the guide mentioned it might), but when I reboot without the LiveUSB, the computer just boots to Win8.
My BIOS doesn't make it extremely clear whether the HDD is booted in EFI or legacy, but from the guide, running the command:
[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo "EFI boot on HDD" || echo "Legacy boot on HDD"
returns a result of legacy. What I'm confused about is that it mentions later in the same guide that the same command is used to determine whether Ubuntu is installed in EFI or legacy. My understanding is that they should be either both in EFI or both in legacy, but shouldn't they technically be independent?
Anyway, I tried both sections in the guide for converting Ubuntu to EFI and converting Ubuntu to legacy, which is essentially just selecting or deselecting Separate /boot/efi partition in the Advanced options -> GRUB location submenu of boot-repair. It also requires setting up partitions, which I think I have done correctly; here's what my gparted looks like in case I'm mistaken.
I guess what I want is for GRUB to appear when I boot. But I'm pretty new to this, so I have no idea what is missing at this point.
Thanks in advance for the help.
