    How to remove rEFInd

    Hello everyone!

    I am a new to Ubuntu (I started to use it a week ago) and also I am not too familiar with EFI UEFI, I have read a little, but I am still not sure of what it is. I have a Macbook 8,2 and managed to install Windows 8 an Ubuntu 12.10 along with Mac OSX, to make my life 'easier' I decided to install 'rEFInd' which technically would allow me to select which operating system to load upon turning my laptop on.

    Now I get this:

    Four of the options with Tux do not work. Both the only one that works Tux and the Windows one take me to a second menu to select to boot from Ubuntu or Windows 8. Which makes completely pointless having rEFInd, and slightly more annoying.I would rather remove rEFInd and simply boot Ubuntu/Windows using the bootloader provided by Ubuntu.

    I alredy tried removing the refind folder from my EFI folder in MacOSX ("\EFI\refind\refind.efi")

    I also tried doing THIS using the Terminal in Ubuntu.

    but when I do "# efibootmgr -v" I get the following message:

    Fatal:  Couldn't open either sysfs or procfs directories for accessing EFI variables.
    Try 'modprobe efivars' as root.
    I tried running 'modprobe efivars' in the terminal But it makes no difference. So what could I do to remove rEFInd? (Any OS)

    Thank you,
