I have installed Ubuntu 11.10 on an Asus p8z68 v-pro motherboard which is a UEFI bios. The install seems to have worked fine except for one thing, when restarting or shutting down it gets stuck at the Asus bios boot screen when starting up again (or blank screen if turning off the bios flash screen). This means I have to hold down the power button to turn it off and then back on again which boots ubuntu fine.
I have read a lot of the other questions and answers here and dont seem to find a problem/solution that matches this exactly.
I have ubuntu installed on a SSD and then have 2x2TB sata disks in a raid 1 array through intel storage technology and using dmraid to show the raid in ubuntu. Looking at the details for the disks in gparted, all the disks have an msdos partition table, and from what I can see there is not a EFI partition created.
I really dont want to have to reinstall everything if possible as its working well except for the restart glitch.
What things can I try to fix this problem or at least debug it (as it doesnt seem to even reach grub)?
UPDATE: I was sure this was a problem with the drive being a msdos partition table assuming that the EFI had not installed at all (I had a win7 installation on it previously so I wiped that with gparted before installing and must have put on a msdos partition table then). So I reinstalled Ubuntu with a USB install after wiping the ssd drive and setting it to gpt partition table. This correctly installed a Fat16 EFI partition at the beginning and I though everything was going to be rosey. However, it still seems there is a problem with reboot and shutdown except now it doesnt even show the bios splash, just a black screen with no prompt or anything.
