View Full Version : [ubuntu] Grub Fails to Install on Ubuntu 12,10

November 19th, 2012, 02:13 AM
I have a GA-Z77X-UD5H Motherboard by Gigabyte. I have windows 7 installed that works fine. Installing Ubuntu 12.10 works fine but grub fails to install, so I only see the windows boot menu. I have tried using EasyBCD 2.2 to book into the drive, but it always fails, so I am at loss.

I am wondering if anyone else has this motherboard and has this problem, maybe I missing a setting.

Did you install the 64 bit version of Ubuntu? And is Windows in UEFI mode or BIOS mode. Your motherboard BIOS supports both.

Window & Ubuntu both have be be either UEFI/gpt mode or BIOS/MBR mode to both work. And how you boot install disk is how it will install.

Post the link to the BootInfo report that this creates.
