option two eventually worked, can't recollect what it was...  :-\

YIPPIE!.... first post from withing the installed version of p6 on the ASUS Republic of Gamers harddrive...

used a closely related tutorial here: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?54342-Dual-booting-Windows-8-1-amp-Ubuntu-14-04-in G751JT
which reminded me of a few things I've done with PCNetSpec previously.... not that my short term memory will allow me to remember what I just did to arrive here  :(
but I'm in... leaving this until my putzing around can jog my memory about how to make the grub menu always give me the choice to boot...

Did you say there's 2 UEFI boot options for Peppermint and one is broken ?

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo efibootmgr -v

Hmm .. how exactly are booting Peppermint ?

is it a liveUSB ?

There doesn't appear to be a UEFI boot entry for it, so can you walk me through what you have to do to boot into Peppermint ?

i've no idea... I installed peppermint twice yesterday from the live USB. Both times after rebotting, Win 10 took me back there with no grub menu... This morning I inserted the GRUB 2 beta USB and from there I somehow ended up in the root after selecting the Grub recovery mode... my memory fails me at that point... suppose I can try again... but I'm sorta leary of rebooting at the moment ;~)

but here we go... I'll pause and write as it goes from the other laptop...

So you're having to boot from a USB stick .. you cannot boot Peppermint without the USb stick ?

This is the 64bit respin of peppermint 6 right ?

Now I'm retracing my steps...

*Detect and show boot methods

*grub.config - etract entries...

selected e to edit command of above...

this is not giving me the options i had before installing the efibootmanager... can't retrace my access to desktop install....

going to study the Boot Manually options...


choosing Grub config - Extract entries takes me to the Advanced options I selected this morning...

and now I have 4 entries for Peppermint two of which are recovery mode.....

I chose the first one this am and this is where I selected "e" to edit comments... 


guess we're done for the night, the laptop refuses to start after the last reboot...

nope, wait... its back..

time for me to go fix food things... be back in half an hour or so...

Another reboot hitting F2 to get into UEFI/BIOS, just to double check that the USB was still set as #1 boot option & secure boot is disabled
f10 to save and exit
esc to get the boot manager
show all boot options
chose the linux install with the updated latest kernel

and i thought we were booting up, but process ended with a string of 14


Code: [Select]
 [25.429541] init: plymouth-upstart-bridge main process (2590) terminated with status 1
 [25.429541] init: plymouth-upstart-bridge main process ended, respawning

But are you having to have a USB stick (sommat like supergrub or a Peppermint LiveUSB) inserted to boot to the hard drive ?

From within Peppermint (once booted) what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep grub
and
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep shim
