Before starting, I'd like to point out that after checking out alot of topics on the forum, I still haven't found a solution that works for me, so I hope this doesn't get flagged as a quesiton already answered.
EIther way, I'm using a laptop with W8.1 installed(came with windows 8 pre-installed), and I have been having trouble getting it to dual boot. I'm pretty noob at linux in general, although I've installed several other dual boots(bios installs though).
I started by deactivating SECURE BOOT and enabling CSM, so i could finally boot from live usb with ubuntu on it. I managed to get to the ubuntu install, installed side by side with windows 8.1, but now the problem is that when I reboot, i don't see the grub menu!
When i boot from live USB, heres the gparted: http://picpaste.com/WP_20140606_09_44_14_Pro-S72MsTEm.jpg
Also, interesting fact, when i choose from liveUSB menu to boot from primary partition, I get a busybox command line!
Thanks for anyone who can throw me a line :)
