I recently bought a ASUS laptop and Windows 10 was pre-installed in it. So I installed Ubuntu and completely erased Windows 10. But after installing Ubuntu my laptop only boots into BIOS . I checked the boot menu there is no option to boot from HDD.

  • Can you access Ubuntu manually? Commented Jun 8, 2016 at 23:49
  • No I can't. Only thing I can do is use it from USB drive.

  • Do you have a recovery parition or a DVD/USB to repair BIOS from ASUS?

    When starting your computer if you press Esc or F12 to enter on boot menu what are the options? Commented Jun 9, 2016 at 0:01

    Since you don't have any files you want at your disk, try again with the live cd and choose try (instead of install) then install gparted, choose your hard disk from GParted-> Devices and recreate a gpt partition table from Device-> Create Partition Table. Then try the UEFI installation again. Commented Jun 14, 2016 at 13:20

It sounds like the UEFI. Set it to Bios Legacy mode. I read the following in a comment concerning Asus accepting only Windows UEFI signatures. For this question Here

Windows is the culprit, as usual !! Boot into UEFI menu, disable Secure Boot and enable Legacy Boot or something like that. Every modern operating system is using a secure signature (key) to tell UEFI it is a genuine operating system (not malware fakes). For some weird reason (Windows motherlover) the manufacturer (ASUS) has set the G551V UEFI to accept only Windows signatures. – ipse lute Jun 13 at 21:49

  • Wow! Don't take it too serious! Asus is making many many laptop models! I personally owned like 3 models and i never had any problems with any of them. That secure signature key may affect ONLY laptops that have Windows preinstalled. A 'special gift' for Windows lovers. It's like gsm-carrier locked phones. You get a Microsoft discount if you 'promise' never to uninstall Windows. Magnificent, isn't it? They must have got that idea from Nokia.

Try unplugging and repluggin your hard drive.

Alternatively, boot from the install media with the drive plugged in. If it's there, re-install Ubuntu.
