View Full Version : Ubuntu Installer does not install grub on EFI Toshiba Sattelite L955

July 19th, 2013, 01:17 AM
I have a EFI comptuer with Windows 8 Pro preintalled. I want to dualboot Ubuntu with windows, and I am pretty sure windows 8 boots on GRUB, so I instal ubuntu in another partition on my hard disk (i have no other choice, the installer did not recognize windows) and I reboot. No GRUB. Ubuntu does not have a bootloader entry, so the EFI bootloader would not work for me.

I am extremely confused.:confused: And this is not a duplicate (I checked)

"Boot Repair -Also handles LVM, GPT, separate /boot and UEFI dual boot"

Got it correct. Boot Repair gave me a grub meny and allowed both my systems to run.
