    Question How do i add grub 2 and keep blue win8 bootloader

    I want to be able to boot Ubuntu from the blue win8 bootloader but its not working and no one seems to be able to help so im willing to compromise can I keep both where grub will load first and I can boot Ubuntu or my other os's or choose windows 8 and boot into the win8 bootloader? I saw this on another thread somewhere but I cant find it. If I cant I could just use grub 2 gui but it'd be a shame to lose the win8 bootloader gui

    Is your install UEFI or BIOS?

    Post the link to the BootInfo report that this creates. Is part of Boot-Repair:

    You can repair many boot issues with this or 'Create BootInfo' report (Other Options) & post the link it creates, so we can see your exact configuration and diagnose advanced problems.

    Force removal of hiberfil from Ubuntu

    WARNING for Windows 8 Dual-Booters
    It defaults shutdown to a hybrid hibernation/off state for fast boot
    But then files may be corrupted similar to Windows 7 Hibernation:
