I FINALLY managed to solve this problem, the solution after all was completely trivial. Using grub-customizer, General settings tab, there was an unchecked box Check for other operating systems Once I checked that and wrote to MBR, all of my problems went away, grub listed linux as the default entry and found windows. I can only imagine that this flag was ...

If there is no need for a native installation oft Windows XP I'd advice you to use kvm-qemu or hyper-v running XP as a guest OS instead oft wasting a partition for XP.

Now I can fool my firmware and make it boot using GRUB instead of Windows Boot Manager, and select between Windows and Ubuntu from there.

First, back up the affected files. Then copy PreLoader.efi to \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.efi, copy HashTool.efi to the same directory, copy a binary of a loader like gummmiboot to ...

Well, you can try a few tools if you have spare discs around(not sure if live usb's would work). I've had issues with this many times, make sure your BIOS is also set to boot from the right place (some more advanced ones will even let you choose the OS.) Also make sure you're NOT using UEFI if possible. It causes more issues with live CDs and Linux than I ...
