October 31st, 2015, 03:22 PM

My laptop has windows 8.1 pre-installed. Now i installed ubuntu 15.04 in an empty drive.

during my installation,I made three partitions

one for \ as ext4 journaling file system
two for \home as ext4 journaling file system
rest for swap area

device for boot loader installation - was left to the default option.

during the start of my computer, i get two boot options
1)boot from efi file - when i press enter i gives a screen which has file explorer on it and is stuck like that forever.
2)new harddrive - when i press this ubuntu starts

how to figure out what has happened?

do i have a way to figure out what happened
