I recently bought a Sony VAIO Pro 13 and after witnessing the horror that in Windows 8, I decided to attempt to install Ubuntu GNOME 13.10 as a dual boot option.
During the install process I partitioned 2 drives: for the Ubuntu root mount and the swap area. The installation went fine and I restarted without the LiveUSB, however tHe laptop booted directly into Win 8. The install guide said I should see a GRUB menu but I didn't. After restarting back into the LiveUSB I ran the boot-repair utility using the recommended settings and then restarted. Now the laptop will not even boot into Windows, I get an "Operating system not found error" in both UEFI and Legacy modes.
Here is my boot-repair log: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7064164/
I know there are some issues with the SSD and I have found info on how to fix this, providing you can at least boot to Grub, which I can't?!
Any help is appreciated, I am worried I have bricked this brand new laptop.
