After the 14.04 install: Kubuntu boots fine, Win8 will not boot (get GRUB error about missing efi file?).
Have installed Kubuntu 14.04 onto a Dell Inspiron 7000 series laptop, with existing Win8 partition.
Win8 used for BIOS upgrades, etc, and the other stuff you can only presently do under Windows.
With the 14.04 install disabled the Intel Smart Response Technology (SRT) and FastStartup as instructed.
I could not disable QuickBoot/FastBoot as I could not find such an entry in the Dell BIOS settings (should be in Advanced, according to some other Dell systems).
Have installed 14.04 in EFI mode (according to the terminal output)
Warning errors happened during the running of boot-repair (under Live DVD).
During the checking phase it told me:
- "EFI detected, please check the advanced options"
- "Disable Secure Boot in the BIOS"
I gather that disabling Secure Boot will mess up the existing Win8 install (& probably the 14.04 install in place) so not keen to do it.
I am not keen about making changes to the boot-repair defaults without expert advice ( as advised in the boot-repair instructions).
My boot-repair summary is at http://paste.ubuntu.com/7327052/
BTW Can I run boot-repair from within the existing 14.04 installation? The notes did not say so & its much easier to do so.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
