That .. Every time I turn off or reboot from ubuntu, the boot are lost ...

No Grub menu, nothing ... just this message:

No boot device available

SATA 0: Installed

SATA 1: Installed

SATA 2: None

SATA 3: None

More information:

  • Ubuntu 12.10 (with all the updates)
  • UEFI boot without security (dual boot with windows 8) (My Dell XPS 8500 had windows 8 EOM and therefore UEFI boot :'( )
  • Only using windows I have no trouble
  • The "Boot-Repair" don't work (URL:
  • In any LiveCD , I can see and manage my HD

To recover the grub I have done is to use a recovery disk windows without making any kind of handle on the machine, just put my disc, I say start my machine ("Continue to windows 8") and went directly to grub but if I happen to get linux sometime I lose the boot

Somebody can help me? If you need more information, please tell me

Thank you

Wait until Ubuntu fully supports UEFI ...

After install and reinstall all my OS, ubuntu is doing the same all the times (lost the boot system)...

I found that Ubuntu does not support the "Intel® Rapid Storage Technology", this affect directly the GPT ...

currently only recommend wait out the ubuntu 13.04 (with a rescovery USB close)
