Hello! My problem is that once I install ubuntu, it does not save it or make any changes to the boot menu. Also when installing it already says it has installed ubuntu twice! If I wanted to I can keep on installing forever and nothing saves! Please help! Here are some links to what I see:

A UEFI mode installation requires that you have an EFI partition to hold the bootloaders. sdb does not have an EFI partition, which you probably should have (definitely if sdb is an USB or other removable). Does sda have an EFI partition? If not, and you are dual booting, your installation is not in UEFI mode, and you should install UBuntu in legacy mode.

In that case I hope you multiple tested backups.
