comment Can't boot into Ubuntu after Windows 8.1 upgrade, boot-repair doesn't fix it
The latest windows update disrupted the boot process again. I had to follow this repair procedure again (deleting the boot/efi/Microsoft folder). I guess that the only way to get definitely rid of this problem is to uninstall Windows and wait till Microsoft will decide to make their product play nice with other operating systems.

comment Can't boot into Ubuntu after Windows 8.1 upgrade, boot-repair doesn't fix it
If I run sudo efibootmgr -v from linux, there is only one entry, and that is "EFI USB Device". That is probably because to boot from USB I have to start the pc with a special key and then select boot from usb. I guess that it temporarily overrides the NVRAM content. So I can't delete entries, and if I do add entries, they disappear the next time I boot.

Thank you Rod Smith. At the moment I can't try what you suggest because I fear that after that I risk not being able to run Windows, and I need it in the next few days (afterwards I could try). I can confirm that "secure boot" is disabled - and in fact if I enable it I can't boot refind from USB.
