I can boot Ubuntu with seperate grub cd which has no problem finding its gpt partition. The machine however can't seem to find the bootable partition by itself. When the system reboots after installation I get:Error 1962.

Restarting the installation cd and going into the partition manager I see that ubuntu has set up the drive as follows: /dev/sda. /dev/sda1 efi 20mb. /dev/sda2 ext4 495977mb. /dev/sda3 swap 4110mb.

Booting from the separate grub2 live cd boots the operating system installed on the hard drive. The operating system is listed as: Linux(hd0,gpt2)/boot/vmlinuz-3.0.0-12-generic Any ideas?

You will have to be more specific. –  psusi Dec 9 '12 at 22:55

Please edit your question to add the relevant information rather than comment. Also a screen shot would help. –  psusi Dec 10 '12 at 14:52
    
Sounds like the grubloader did not install to your MBR (if you installed from a USB, it may have installed there by default). Did you try re-installing the grubloader? grub-install --no-floppy /dev/sdX did it for me on my debian box when I did that on accident. –  nerdwaller Dec 10 '12 at 17:42
