So I am using Ubuntu Secure Remix to attempt to repair my broken system (not really BROKEN, but after installing Fedora 17, I can't boot into Windows 8).
Here is the summary that the tool gave me to report back to this forum.
When I run boot-repair, I get either a RAID message warning or I am told "Please enable a repository containing the [grub-efi] packages in the software sources of Linux (mapper/vg_bigpapa-lv_root). Then try again."
I do not use RAID, but an LVM if that helps. And yes, bigpapa is my computer's name.
