Thanks, for the duplicate flag, I couldn't find the duplicate question from the suggestions as I typed my question.

comment SYSLINUX: No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!
I did this as well, then noticed that the BIOS had set the OS to 'Windows'. Setting the booted OS to 'Other' in BIOS, along with booting from the USB installer in compatability mode worked for me.

comment How can I repair grub? (How to get Ubuntu back after installing Windows?)
This ended up being the cleanest option for me. It's a few more key strokes, but hey, it works. I have a mix of Legacy and UEFI booted devices. If users are booting one OS much more than an assortment of others, this can be faster (and safer) over the long run.

easyBCD allowed me to add and remove boot options that I could see in both Windows Boot Loader and BIOS, but they never worked because easyBCD relies on some sort of automated magic to find Linux partitions... it didn't work when my Linux partition was on a separate harddrive.

It's worth noting the Boot-Repair only works with systems booted in EFI/UEFI mode, which is set in your machine's BIOS. If you are set up to boot your Ubuntu/Linux in Legacy mode, Boot-Repair won't work.

comment How to install Windows 7 after Ubuntu and dual boot?
Using Windows through a VM tends to worsen the peformance of fancy graphics and visual effects, from my experience with running Windows 8 in a VM.

Note that Boot-Repair will not work if you have booted up in Legacy mode, it only works in EFI mode.

comment How do I change the GRUB boot order?
If you were like me and couldn't find /etc/default/grub (or it wouldn't update saved changes), try modifying the GRUB_DEFAULT value in /etc/grub.d/00_header (if you have it) and then updating. It worked for me.

comment How do I change the GRUB boot order?
I am using Linux Mint Debian Edition. I didn't have a /etc/default/grub , but found the GRUB_DEFAULT value to modify was instead in /etc/grub.d/00_header . After modifying GRUB_DEFAULT in 00_header with my desired boot entry name, I simply ran "sudo update-grub" and voila, success.

I had to set the JAVA_HOME path in ~/.bashrc before this worked.

comment Install Sopcast in 64-bits
btw I installed sopcast player from Google Code by following Step 2 here instead of your instructions above: sysads.co.uk/2014/06/install-sopcast-player-0-8-5-ubuntu-14-04 . For some reason, sopcast-player wouldn't install via apt-get (ppa, repo issue?).
