Being impatient and willing to wait until Dell comes up with their new version with ubuntu preloaded, I am trying to install 14.04.1 on my brand new XPS 13 (9343).
I did few dry runs with a USB install key, found out how to work around the few kinks they still have (i.e., I got the network, and the mousepad working fine) and decided to go for the full installation.
Given that I do not care for Windows 8, I opted to nuke it out, and install only linux. No need for me to keep a dual boot at all. Thia apparently was a careless move, as after I completed a seemingly successfull installation, at the next reboot I get:
No bootable device found. Press F1 key to reboot. Press F2 key for setup utility Press F5 key to run onboard diagnostic.
My guts tell me that I inadvertently removed the Windows loader and did not get grub installed so at boot time it does not find any partition where to boot from.
If I re-use the USB key I can see the drive, and its data, but I cannot run it from the HD.
How do I get from here to have grub (or any valid boot loader) to work on these UEFI hard disks?
