comment How to dual boot Win8/Ubuntu using UEFI and two HDDs
One question. I am about to install Ubuntu and Windows starting from a USB stick. I have created the Windows install stick using ISO2DISK and I have selected GPT (GUID Partition Table). Is this correct?

comment Windows removed from grub after installation of Ubuntu 14.04
Using grub repair I was able to set MBR as deafult (not sure the terminology is right) and after restarting I could boot straight into Windows. After doing this though, I tried to use boot repair, but again, at the next reboot, I could only see Ubuntu options in grub. Any idea?
