I am consistently getting the
ERROR: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed. message when trying to boot a single OS Ubuntu 14.04LTS setup.
I have a brand new Packard Bell L4875-i5 with Acer BIOS v 2.15.1227. I am able to choose Secure boot or not, but I haven't found any EFI options in the BIOS. The HDD is recognized as "UEFI: ADATA SX900" by the BIOS. The original Win 8 HDD that the shipped with the PC was replaced by a brand new SSD 128 GB disk prior to the Ubuntu install.
- I got 13.10 to boot after hours of trial and error with boot-repair and trying different BIOS settings. After upgrading to 14.04 I encountered this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub2/+bug/1289977 which I tried to fix with boot-repair. Repeated the same steps that got it working in 13.10, but no luck. I am back to:
...No boot disk has been detected...
- Fresh clean install of 14.04 on a wiped SSD, Ubuntu defaults for a single OS boot results in
ERROR: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed..
- I have tried both Secure Boot On and Off, no difference.
- As before, boots fine with the help of Supergrubdisk.
