I have a Asus Zenbook ux31a and my SSD just died so I am trying to run off of a SD card but cannot get it to boot off of it.

I installed Ubuntu 64 bit onto the SD using a usb flash drive and created a boot option in the bios pointing to grubx64.efi but does not recognize.

Here is the online report created for the boot-info

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I'm no expert on UEFI but looking at your link, I'm not convinced the SD card is right - it appears you have it booted from the USB-stick to obtain the report, however this:

$ efibootmgr -v

UEFI/Legacy mode:
BIOS is EFI-compatible, and is setup in EFI-mode for this live-session.
SecureBoot disabled. (maybe sec-boot, Please report this message to boot.repair@gmail.com)

Seems to suggest the SD isn't bootable.

I did find this link which looks similar

  • Yes, only way i can boot at all is through a usb flash drive that has the ubuntu startup on it. I did a full install from this flash drive to the SD card and it seemed to be successful, however when I removed the usb flash drive, my zenbook will not recognize any bootable device. I tried to add a bootable device but that did not work either. – Iggy Jan 29 '15 at 12:28
  • I also grabbed another USB flash drive and did a full install on it. It boots just fine but no wifi. Seems like taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back.. – Iggy Jan 29 '15 at 12:30
