View Full Version : [ubuntu] Grub does not start start after boot-repair (Win8.1 /EFI)

I installed Ubuntu 12.04.04 alongside Windows 8, following the steps indicated in these links:


My problem is now that even after the boot-repair (from my LiveUSB) Grub does not appear, instead Windows 8 is always booting.
This is the URL from the boot-repair report: paste.ubuntu.com/7124765/

I have a Sony Vaio Notebook (SSD) with UEFI.
These are the steps I did:
1. Created the Live USB (64bit)
2. disabled FastStartup
3. Installed Ubuntu (no secure boot error, so I kept it enabled) in UEFI mode
(Here Ubuntu automatically choose my data partition where Windows is not installed, maybe the problem lies here?)
4. Reboot... now Windows 8 started, not Grub
5. Boot-repair as described here:


6. Reboot... again Windows started
7. Boot-repair again, this time with SecureBoot disabled, reboot... same result
