    BCD has 1:1 mappings for some UEFI global variables
    Any time {fwbootmgr} is manipulated, NVRAM is automatically updated
    I think I've really screwed it up now. I followed the directions outlined above, and now I can't do anything. When I start it up, it boots into Windows Boot Manager with a single entry for Ubuntu. When I selected that, it gives me the usual warning that it can't find the .efi file or .mbr file. The (really) bad part is that I can't get to the UEFI Firmware Setup (i.e., the old BIOS menu), so I can't boot from a USB - I'm stuck. When I boot it up, it does flash for a split second, almost like it goes to another screen (the UEFI menu?), but then goes into the Win Boot Mgr.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to how to get out of this jam?

    Thanks,

    I am having issues booting into fresh install of Ubuntu 13.04 64bit onto a USB key.

    I have posted full details here:

    After using boot-repair I got following trace info, but problem did not get resolved:

    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in one click

    I am trying to partially copy an installation of 10.04 onto a new disk. I want to have /, /boot, ./var on the new disk and leave /home on the old disk.

    I have cloned the relevant partitions onto the new disk using clonezilla and adjusted /etc/fstab on the new disk. Then I have attempted to used the boot-repair disk from a USB drive to fix the boot on the new disk. When I click apply it appears to do something for a few seconds and then shows this message:

    Please close all package managers (Software Center, Update Manager, Synaptic,...). Then try again.

    As far as I can see there are no package managers running.

    How can I get boot-repair to work?

    The boot info is here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7134623/

    @DaNipper
    I would use bcdEdit or EasyBCD to repair BCD to get Windows working. Someone in another thread said Windows 8.1 will not boot anything else from BCD like 8 did.

    @dima6
    Please see your thread. I think main issue is a commented there that 13.04 is not supported, so you do not get any updates nor can Boot-Repair download fixes from repository.

    @glennr
    Your 10.04 is still only supported for a server version. So any apps that are gui based will not update nor can you easily fix. Better to upgrade to a newer fully supported version. If you cloned partitions, did you also change UUIDs. (sda1 & sdb1 are identical, did not check rest.) You cannot have duplicate UUIDs. You must change them and then update fstab & reinstall grub2.

    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in one click

    Hi guys,

    first and foremost, thank you developers for creating this nifty little gui. However, I am at my wit's end here.

    My system is an Acer Aspire XC-105: First thing I did after hooking it with power, was to install xubuntu-13.10 64-bit, replacing the Windows 8.1 installation.
    Anyway, install and use went fine -- first reboot, and I get the infamous "Insert boot media"-message.

    So, after running boot repair (on-click-fix-all), everything i fine: I boot into my system and keep wotking, thinking everything is fixed: Next reboot, same message. I ran boot-repait again, boot into system, next reboot same problem. So any helpful pointers? System claims to be efi: Boot-repair log: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7143491/

    Thank you so much in advance.

    Do you have secure boot on.

    It looks like you had Ubuntu kernels that were not signed, but now have the signed kernels. They should work with secure boot on.

    But some vendors have modified UEFI to only boot Windows or boot Windows by default.

    this looks like you should only have Ubuntu

    BootOrder: 0003,0001,0002,0000
    Boot0000 Windows Boot Manager
    Boot0001* UEFI: MATSHITA DVD-RAM SW830
    Boot0002* UEFI: WDC WD10EZEX-22RKKA0
    Boot0003* ubuntu

    Thanks, @oldfred. That thread does sound like the problem I was facing. However, it's gotten much worse. As I mentioned, after following the instructions in "Remove Duplicate Firmware Objects in BCD and NVRAM", I can no longer boot into Windows nor Ubuntu, and I can't even get to the UEFI Firmware settings so I can boot from USB.

    I can't use EasyBCD because I can't get into Windows, and I can't use bcedit to restore the backup I made, because I can't boot my Windows 8 rescue USB.

    I'm in some sort of purgatory where I can't get to ANYTHING. My laptop is basically a brick at the moment (hopefully not permanently).

    Any ideas?

    @DaNipper
    Afraid I only know basic repair info on Windows that I have picked up from those that needed some fixes. I do not run Windows and shut down my XP 2 years ago.
    Have you done a cold boot? Some systems do seem to lock up after many reboots. And if you left fast boot on, it bypasses boot keys and can create major issues.
    If a laptop shutdown and remove battery. Hold power switch with battery out to drain capacitors. Then try booting into UEFI/BIOS.
    But at least one vendor configured fast boot and UEFI had issues that made system a brick under certain circumstances, originally blamed on Linux (of course) but proven to also occur under Windows.

    Thanks, @oldfred - I will give this a try tonight.
