I have a new(er) HP Pavillion G6, and I completely wiped the hard drive to install ubuntu primarily, with a small Windows 7 partition. I created a partition for "/", the "/home" directory, a little for swap, and one for the windows section. Finished installing, restarted, it says "boot device not found, please install operating system. What steps should I take to install ubuntu and windows 7? Thank you for any help offered.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

There are too many unknowns in your description. (For this reason, I would NOT recommend flagging this question as a duplicate just yet.) Please run the Boot Info Script and post a link to the RESULTS.txt file that it generates; this should provide the information that's necessary to answer the question. – Rod Smith Aug 3 '13 at 15:49

Ouch, sounds like you need to check out the UEFI Documentation from Ubuntu. If it was a Windows 8 machine, it can be a pain. Stopped buying those Windows machines because of that annoyance. There are other options, but this is a forum to help with Ubuntu questions.
