After installing Ubuntu 14.04.3 on a HP Pavilion G6 that had windows 8.1 pre-installed, I am unable to see the grub menu. I can see two entries of Ubuntu if I hit the Esc key while booting and press F9 to go into boot menu. Ubuntu boots fine if either entry is selected. (note:Secure boot is disabled in BIOS. Legacy is also turned off.)
First I tried boot-repair (default) which announced that it has successfully repaired the boot, but the situation did not change.
Then I tried the 'bcdedit' method shown here: Grub not showing on startup for Windows 8.1 Ubuntu 13.10 Dual boot I now find 4 Ubuntu entries in the boot-menu, but still grub does not show up automatically.
Is there anything else I could try? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
