I really want to try out and become a full time user of Ubuntu on my laptop so for the moment I have setup a dual boot on my Windows 8 HP Envy M6 Laptop. To do this, I shrank my Windows 8 partition to create 100GB empty space that the Ubuntu installer could use to install itself to. I then followed these instructions with Ubuntu 13.04 x64 as my distro of choice.
I selected the option within Ubuntu to install alongside Windows 8 at first. I then later tried the manual option to no avail.
When I restart my machine it just boots straight into Windows. The install booted up in UEFI mode absolutely fine and when I press F9 to get my boot options, Ubuntu 13.04 shows up as an option. However, selecting this option will just cause the machine to boot in Windows 8. I'm at a real loss at the moment as to what I can do as the process should not be this difficult (at least it wasn't with legacy booting) but If nobody can solve this issue it looks as if I'll have to abandon the idea of Linux altogether. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
