    I thought bumblebee was depreciated with the newer nVidia prime drivers. So that may now be a conflict?

    You are not showing any initrd.img-4.4xxx either in boot stanza or list of files. You should have one for each kernel.

    It says it correctly installed grub in UEFI mode correctly.

    But error is related to mount of sda1 which it is just showing as unknown.
    If that was NTFS, you need to run chkdsk from Windows.

    Re: 2nd HDD Permissions

    First comand was this, assuming you have mounted it at /HDD2 which now seems incorrect:
    $ cd /stuff/
    Where in your case /stuff/ is really /HDD2/
    or
    cd /hdd2/

    But it looks like you do not have...

    Again, I do not really know LVM nor use it.

    Standard installs now all use a swap file, but will use a swap partition if found.
