If you can set the BIOS back to legacy and boot back into Ubuntu you could attempt to reinstall the bootloader specifying UEFI rather than BIOS. Using something similar to: grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi I've only ever manually installed grub when using Arch but I think it's relatively the same process under Ubuntu.

You need to reinstall Ubuntu, but without changing to Legacy mode in the BIOS. Ubuntu supports EFI perfectly. I'm pretty sure your problem is that the EFI version of Windows 8 was installed, while you installed the BIOS/Legacy version of Ubuntu. Try to boot into the legacy part of Windows when it is EFI won't work. You could also try this, in case you ...

Sounds like an great rig! Assuming you properly set up you USB drive to be bootable image of Ubuntu and enable your BIOS to boot from USB (if required) then Yes. If you are new to installing OS's I would suggest to download the Ubuntu ISO and burn it to CD/DVD then install it that way.

There is a detailed guide how to burn ISO image on windows or on Ubuntu. You can read it from here. After you have successfully burned the image, put the disk in the DVD drive and reboot your PC. Now you have to choose the boot device to boot from. There is a default boot order set in the BIOS. This is the order that BIOS searchs different drives and ...

I don't know whether Windows 8 improved over the year (or decades in Windows terms of the smallest time step to introduce basic improvement), but in Windows 7 a reliable way is to create recovery disk of Windows with Windows[^1] make a full dd image of the HDD(s)[^2], e.g. from an Ubuntu live (this allows you to do 1. in VirtualBox on Ubuntu later) ...

Clearing CMOS by shorting the clear CMOS jumper on my mother board solved the issue so please ignore my questions! After clearing CMOS I loaded default settings in BIOS, customized what I needed and was ready to go again. However after starting fresh with new Xubuntu installation and doing a few configurations, installations the same issue happened. I have ...

TL;DR. Try all your USB ports including all USB ports on your docking station if you have one. I just experienced the same thing with a new installation of Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS and a following dist-upgrade now running the following: Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (lsb_release -a) 3.16.0-33-generic (uname -r) grub-install (GRUB) 2.02~beta2-9ubuntu1 (grub-install ...

Check your BIOS, maybe it is set like that (Timer) or Wake-On-LAN or something of that sort. Just reset BIOS Settings and Done!
