I have hp pavillion sleekbook 14 with windows 8. I installed ubuntu only to find out that it cant be booted. I performed boot-repair as others in this forum have did. The boot-repair was successful. But in the end it showed me a message,"Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sda2/EFI/ubuntu/shimx64.efi file!" and my url is I dont know what that means . I think i ll be able to get the grub when i perform the above action. Can anyone help me to boot bios on that shimx64.efi file pls!!

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

The question claimed as an answer concerns a WUBI install, and there's no evidence of a WUBI install in this case. Although there have been similar questions asked here that might be suitable referents, IMHO the suggested one is not one of them! IMHO, this type of problem is better solved in a forum than on this site, since it's likely to involve a system-specific firmware bug. – Rod Smith Mar 30 '13 at 18:11

You must create an efi boot partition during install. I make one about 100MB in size and it is fine. During install create a partition and assign efi filesystem.
