I'm trying to install 13.04 64-bit server on an AMD Fusion based System (C60M1-i). Installation medium is a USB Stick created with unetbootin (or, better: several of them already).
Ubuntu Live boots well, only after installing Server/Desktop I get a black screen
Missing operation system.
Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key
I already - tried diverse downloaded Images (including Raring Desktop) - partioned the disk using GPT - ran boot-repair
boot-repair log: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5745089
to no avail.
But the EFI doesn't recognise the bootdisk (Sandisk SSD) as bootable (doesn't show as UEFI: Sandisk P4... in the Mainboard Setup).
I have no control over secure boot (Mainboard doesn't offer an option).
How could i get this system booting? I actually wouldn't care booting Legacy (BIOS) in the end...
Thank you for any advice.
Edit #3: It seems that the problem is, that
efibootmgr cannot write the boot-entry to the NVRAM (seems like a bug with some or many EFI boards, at least it is mentioned with different ASUS models on the web. Some folks mention a bug in efibootmgr as well ... will try to figure out). I for now sort of worked around it by placing a copy of
grubx64.efi to the root of the EFI partition and then from the mainboard setup call 'Start EFI Shell from filesystem'. E voilá - there's grub and I can boot. Will need to find a complete solution, still.
Edit #4: Might have to do with this: Sony VAIO with Insyde H2O EFI bios will not boot into GRUB EFI
