So when I start my computer grub comes up just fine and I have 4 options. Ubuntu; Advanced options for Ubuntu; Windows UEFI bkgbootmgfw.ofi; windows boot UEFI loader. The Windows boot UEFI loader option starts windows 8 just fine. When I choose the Ubuntu option I get nothing but a blank purple screen.
The advanced Ubuntu options have a bit of text displayed when I select them, but they still do nothing. They are Ubuntu, with Linux 3.8.0-19-generic; Ubuntu, with Linux 3.8.0-19-generic (recovery mode). The text before the system hangs is
Starting Linux 3.8.0-19-generic ... Loading initial Ram Disk ...
I have been trying to install Ubuntu 13.04 to duel boot with Windows 8 using UEFI. I followed the instructions here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI . Of note is that I was unable to directly install Ubuntu in UEFI mode. I had to install it in Legacy and then use boot-repair to convert it to UEFI as instructed in the link above. When I clicked apply it asked me to execute a few commands in the terminal.
sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt-get install -fy sudo apt-get purge -y --force-yes grub*-common suim-signed Linux-signed*
It asked me if I wanted to remove grub. I said yes. Then it had me enter
sudo apt-get install-y --force-yes grub-efi Linux
So I reinstalled Ubuntu redid all of the steps above but recorded the link boot-repair gave me. Here
I don't believe that this is related but I also put my swap partition on a second hard drive.
Any Idea how to fix this or where I went wrong while converting Ubuntu to UEFI?
