I haven't found similar posts anywhere so I would be grateful for any help.
I've seen a couple of machines run Ubuntu using legacy mode and Windows using UEFI boot. This requires a switch of boot options in BIOS, which I'm OK with. So the behavior that I'm looking for is exactly this, in legacy mode, boot ubuntu, in UEFI mode, boot windows provided I make the BIOS switch at startup.
However, after a series of installations and running boot-repair, which i've explained below, I can only boot ubuntu in the legacy mode and when I switch to UEFI mode, I go to grub rescue because it says "no file found". Now I can't boot into windows in any mode!
This is the sequence that caused this. -Windows 8 x64 preinstalled -Tried installing ubuntu in uefi, ran boot repair and this seemed to delete everything. -Reinstalled ubuntu in legacy mode, ran boot repair which doesn't work in the legacy mode
Now only ubuntu in legacy mode works. There is no grub menu at all in the uefi mode.
Here is the link to my boot info http://paste.ubuntu.com/6608333/
How can I add a boot menu in the uefi mode while still having my ubuntu running in legacy mode.
