comment 14.04.2 Installer detects partitions, but not other OSes
It's not really a question of detection; it's a question of what installation options are offered. Fewer are offered on GPT/EFI installations than on MBR/BIOS installations.

comment How to grow LVM partition to include newly released partition (now unallocated space)
A note about terminology: In your case, /home (and / and swap) are not partitions; they're logical volumes. Given the other information you presented, it's clear what you meant, but in another context it might not have been, and you might have gotten an incorrect answer as a result of using the terms incorrectly.

It's also possible to do the LVM management (steps 2, 3, and 4) with a GUI, such as system-config-lvm. Note that it is possible to expand the size of an ext2/3/4 filesystem even if it's mounted, so it's actually not necessary to umount it first. (Backing up first is always advisable when doing low-level disk maintenance, though.)

comment problem dual-booting Windows with EFI and 2 hard disks
Under EFI, you do not normally boot "drives" or "disks," so changing the boot order "by drive" or "by disk" is not likely to be effective. Although there is a default/fallback boot loader filename, most EFI booting is done by filename, with entries pointing to each file in the NVRAM.

comment u410 SSD BIOS Problems
If typing exit enables X, then you do not have an X problem; you've got some sort of hardware problem, most likely with disk detection. Since you're already using the latest kernel for 14.04, the easiest way to try something more recent is to try 15.04, which will be released on the 23rd. You can get a beta here. If that doesn't work, you may need to track down drivers and compile a kernel yourself. Reporting a bug may also be worthwhile. If the machine is new, consider returning it for a refund.

revised Find Kali Security tester tools after installation
The question has nothing to do with rEFInd, so I've removed the rEFInd tag.

comment Repair Grub after Clonezilla
rEFInd is not part of Boot Repair. Chances are it would have worked if you'd managed to create a suitable USB. The flash drive .zip file includes a README-flashdrive.txt file with instructions on how to do this, although they're admittedly Linux-specific.

comment Struggling to boot back into windows after installing ubuntu 14.04
Try a USB flash drive or CD-R version of rEFInd. If it can boot both Windows and Ubuntu, install the PPA or Debian package to your hard disk. If not, or if you don't like it, please edit your question with more precise symptoms -- the exact GRUB options and, especially, error messages that you see.
