I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 (gnome alpha 2) with no success as I am unable to boot (although it was displayed well).
The EFI partition has two folders (entries) one for Windows Booter and another for Ubuntu
but Grub does not load, so Windows 8.1 always boots
If I press F12 when starting I can see the boot options Windows Booter and ubuntu. If I select ubuntu and press intro it still loads Windows
I have the following partitions on my SSD drive:
/dev/sda1 recovery NTFS
/dev/sda2 EFI system FAT32
/dev/sda3 unknown Microsoft Reserved
/dev/sda4 NTFS Windows8 (my C: in windows)
/dev/sda5 NTFS Data (my D: in windows)
/dev/sda6 Ubuntu ext4
I tried with the LiveCD Ubuntu 14.04 to install grub, but it says that /boot/grub is not readable on boot. Impossible to install. Aborting.. or something like that
I tried to apt-get install the boot repair within the live CD but it seems some repositories are missing so it won't install it
I downloaded the boot repair ISO and put it in a USB pendrive. When I boot with it the screen is black and it does not do anything. Also after that most of the options of the UEFI (within Windows 8.1) have disappeared and I can only select Edit EFI System.
I don't know what else to do.. I'm regretting having bought this laptop..
