Quick question. Does your mother board have EFI instead of a regular bios? If this is the case, you need to add a EFI partition. I struggled with this for a while, but it only requires a partition about 10mb in size (though use at least 100 to be safe). – SuperMatt Jul 4 '12 at 11:31
Info about System Specification will be helpful. – atenz Jul 4 '12 at 11:58

Just use Boot-Repair's "Recommended repair". It will reinstall GRUB and provide a BootInfo URL in case you still have boot problems.
