  2. [all variants] Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    I guess as boot-repair is not in Ubuntu at least not part of .iso it could be considered "BETA" also!?

    @tuva2
    Did you use Ubuntu installer to delete Windows Partition only?

  9. [all variants] Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    @MeuronS It appears Windows installed using UEFI and Ubuntu used Legacy/BIOS. Use boot-repair to install grub-efi. Use the advanced options button to review the options regarding this after making...

  16. [ubuntu] Re: Can not boot any Grub options when trying to install using EFI.
