I am trying to dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 13.04 along side each other. I installed 13.04 to a separate partition on the same hard drive as my Win7 install without any difficulties but after I rebooted it booted immediately into windows. GRUB never showed up.

I downloaded a tool called EasyBCD and added GRUB to the boot as per the instructions I found here: "Dual-boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.10 on UEFI hardware"

When I try and boot into GRUB I get to this screen instead of the standard GRUB menu:

GRUB4DOS boot screen – clipped and brushed

What do I do at this point? Thanks in advance.

I used the same document to most part expect the EasyBCD part. Also my dual boot is Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Windows 8.

Also when I executed boot-repair I did the following.

(Boot Repair => Buggy-kernel detected => Yes)

Good Luck

  • Only say yes on "buggy" kernel in Boot-Repair after you confirm that you cannot boot an Ubuntu entry in UEFI menu. That is only for those UEFI systems that modify UEFI to only boot Windows. – oldfred Jan 9 '14 at 23:39
