It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment I removed Ubuntu from the BIOS menu but it comes back
I'm not sure... How would I go about finding that out? And I'm not sure I'd be entirely comfortable removing all of the boot entries without specific instructions on how to add new ones back in...

comment “invalid EFI file path” while booting Windows
Nope. Hadn't messed around with grub at all. Wouldn't even know where to begin. Or how to clean it up. And I definitely don't know enough to start messing around in a file that starts off in big bold letters: "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE."

comment “invalid EFI file path” while booting Windows
I don't know about ntfs... It's whatever was factory installed. I found a couple of different things in that file that sounded like Windows menu entries. Here's the entire thing: pastebin.com/kGKPWbBH

You guessed it, the efi file was not found.

comment “invalid EFI file path” while booting Windows
I am having the same problem. A couple of other questions I came across indicated Boot Repair may help. I tried running it but got a message "GPT detected. Please create a BIOS-Boot partition. This can be performed via tools such as Gparted." I tried that but the "New partition" option is grayed out. Here is the output of my Boot Repair BootInfo summary: paste.ubuntu.com/1346934

comment Error importing iTunes Media into Banshee Media Player - Unable to map iTunes URI to local URI
That was indeed the problem. Specifically, the capitalization (or lack thereof) of certain letters. Interestingly enough, I had other tracks with an incorrect path that showed an error message of "File does not exist."

@mattdavis That was a big help. You should definitely change it to an answer so I can give you the reputation. And thanks!
