I am a Physics PhD student at the university of Nottingham, specialising in atomic force microscopy and scanning tunnelling microscopy. Scientifically I am interested in instrumentation and accurate measurements of nano-scale forces. I also have a keen interest interest in outreach.

Look here to change boot mode, if you are not confident with these instructions then I would probably ask a new question on this message. As I said before I am not confident on giving advice for EFI.

Good luck with that. I have never had (or been asked to help on) a machine with UEFI, so I have no advice. But there is plenty on the net. When you get boot-repair going remember to write down the paste-bin link just in case there is a problem!

NO! It is almost definitely salvageable! That is a last last resort!

I would try boot-repair. It is the second answer in the question you link to. Do NOT run the grub2-install command below!
