This is the most frustrating issue I have ever run into using Ubuntu and Windows in the same machine.
I have an ASUS K46CB, 6GB RAM and preinstalled Windows 8.1 64-bits. I have successfully installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, also 64-bits. To do so,I followed this tutorial whenever possible. I only failed on the disable secure boot part: there is no 'Secure-boot' or even UEFI mention in my BIOS!
Screenshots from other BIOS of the same model show the option under Boot, but in mine there is absolutely none. Because of this, I cannot boot into Ubuntu. The computer loads straight into Windows.
I tried running boot repair, but got an error (i can show the log, but it's pretty long).
Does anyone know how to fix this issue?
I reinstalled Ubuntu. Same problem, goes straight to Window. Boot-Repair informs me that i am using Windows in Legacy mode. It excecuted with no errors this time, but after restarting GRUB was still missing. I can't turn off Secure Boot yet.
I tried using Boot Repair to install grub on a bios-grub 1mb partition. Still boots straight to windows. I feel like punching something
UPDATE I reinstalled Ubuntu with a bios-grub partition again, no luck. I forgot to add, there is also no Ubuntu boot option in the BIOS. Even though the OS is installed, I simply cannot access it.
I'm becoming very worried about this, I need Ubuntu for college, does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this??
