Right now when I start my computer GRUB loads, and then I can select if I want to start either OS X or Ubuntu, and if I start the computer holding down the alt-option key to load Mac's efi bootloader Ubuntu doesn't show up. And therein lies the problem, how can I set things up so when I start the computer it simply boot's into OS X, and when i Load Mac's efi loader I can select to boot Ubuntu, through GRUB? I used to have it set up like this, I don't remember what I did as it was a few years ago. Might be a different way to set things up, if you catch the gist of my problem, I don't use Ubuntu a lot and it is rather cumbersome to load Apple's efi bootloader every time I want to start OS X.
