I have installed Ubuntu 12.10 by creating free space in Windows 8 and then using that space to create 3 partitions, one for SWAP, one for GRUB (mounting point is /boot) and one for the actual OS. I did this so the Windows 8 boot loader wouldn't be overwritten in case I ever wanted to remove Ubuntu. I can still boot into Ubuntu if I select the boot loader from the BIOS.
I want to add Ubuntu to the Windows 8 boot loader and I've been told to use EasyBCD. The issue with that is it doesn't actually direct Windows to the GRUB file, but rather to something like
autogrub0.mri. I have found another programme called Visual BCD which will allow me to actually set the bootloader paths and drives.
From here, I don't quite know what to do. I believe I have it set to the correct drive but I don't know if I'm directing to the right file. I think it's
/boot/grub/x86_64-efi/grub.efi. I don't know if that's the right file, if I need to remove
/boot or if the
/ need to be
\ as that's what Windows uses.
Sorry for such a lengthy post, please help!
