I have an HP Envy Ultrabook 4-1030us, which I have a 250GB 2.5" SSD and a 32 GB MSATA SSD which was originally used for the Intel RST which obviously isn't necessary because I installed an SSD. But now I want to use that 32GB MSATA ssd to run Ubuntu, using the larger drive solely for Windows. I have tried running the installer and installing grub on the first drive, which didn't work. It just boots Windows 8. I tried putting the /boot partition on the first drive, it still boots Windows. No grub. I can't configure to BIOS to boot off the smaller drive, it doesn't have that capability. Any ideas on how I can get this to work? Thanks in advance!

Sounds like another case of "Ubuntu doesn't provide a default boot loader in \EFI\BOOT\ for UEFI platforms but the firmware is only able to boot these." –  LiveWireBT Sep 19 at 20:06
