    can't boot ubuntu after windows 7 installation efi

    Hey there,just installed win7 uefi to my system.Then i used boot-repair(one click repair ) to restore grub menu.but when i try to boot ubuntu (13.04) i end up with black screen.Windows boot just fine.
    secure boot is disabled.Ubuntu were uefi installed.
    here is boot-repair review.

    What i did is not so smart since i havent really fully understand mbr vs gtp grub etc

    You did run the rename which may or may not be required. I think Boot-Repair suggests that fix for some systems that do not need it, but that is not related to your main issue. Line 977 in your report:
    Save and rename /mnt/boot-sav/sdb3/boot/efi/EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi (/mnt/boot-sav/sdb3/boot/efi/EFI/Boot/bkpbootx64.efi)

    If you want to undo that.

    To undo & to rename files to their original names, you just need to tick the "Restore EFI backups" option of Boot-Repair.

    If you are not booting Ubuntu that may be a video issue. If you get grub menu have you tried nomodeset.
    What video card/chip do you have for video?
    I have to add nomodeset with my nVidia. At grub menu press e for edit, scroll to linux line and replace the quiet splash with nomodeset.

    How to set NOMODESET and other kernel boot options in grub2 - both BIOS liveCD & grub first boot ( also UEFI with grub)
