For the longest time I wanted to switch to Linux, and after some research, Ubuntu seemed the best bet. The last straw was when I bought an Asus X75A-DS51 Notebook, even after the free upgrade from Windows 8 to 8.1, I still could not stand it. Here are the laptop's specifications: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834231037
After using an Ubuntu 13.10 install disk and installing it on separate partitions than my Windows 8.1 partitions, I get no boot menu when I start my laptop. I can only use it by putting the disc back in and running the live version. So I ran Boot-Repair and got this:
EFI detected. Please check the options.
The boot of your PC is in Legacy mode. You may want to retry after changing it to EFI mode. Do you want to continue?
sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sda11" dpkg --configure -a sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sda11" apt-get install -fy sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sda11" apt-get purge -y --force-yes grub*-common shim-signed linux-signed* sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sda11" apt-get install -y --force-yes grub-efi linux
Boot successfully repaired.
Please write on a paper the following URL: paste.ubuntu.com/6918513/
In case you still experience boot problem, indicate this URL to: email@example.com or to your favorite support forum.
You can now reboot your computer. Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sda1/EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi file!
A broken Wubi has been detected. (Note: I did not use Wubi.)
** EDIT **
This is the error screen I am now getting when I try to boot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/r6ibqu4p7dofuce/100_8497.JPG
