Thanks to all for your help in making these instructions work in Kubuntu as well as in Ubuntu. I've edited the help page in the wiki (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UE...8%28UEFI%29%29 to reflect this extra information. Some of the participants in this conversation might want to look at my edits and improve (or correct) them further.
Glad it worked out! Can you please mark the thread as solved (using "Thread Tools" at the top of the page) when you get a chance?
