Actually, the last action i've done with boot-repair is to restore mbr unchecking the reinstall grub option.
Sorry, I've overlooked that.
The idea grub esixts depends on the boot partition os listed. I expected ubuntu was no more in the list. On the contrary it is still there. See my attach jpg.
I premise I have a very little experience in system setup and UEFI is something new for me: probably the presence of the ubuntu folder does not matter. I don't know. Do you know I can proceed in a new ubuntu installation regardless the ubuntu folder in my boot partition?
To answer your questions, as i changed my computer i've experienced 64 bit computer and the secure boot.
I've found windows 8 pre installed, and I need it for particular software, so I've tried to dual-boot Windows 8 and ubuntu 12.04 because I need also a stable and durable LTS release. In fact I've done it other times before.
I've read in some articles / forums that Grub2 is the better choice for an UEFI system. Actually Precise 1.04.1 has only the
Grub1.99. So I've upgraded ubuntu to the 12.10 release in order to make Grub2 as boot loader. The result was a Grub2 boot loader with odd entries, whose only those fit for ubuntu work not those for Windows. This the reason I've used boo repair. At first to uninstall-fixmbr-reinstall grub. After fail attempts, I've only repaires mbr and obtained a windows system. I think I had dualbooted some system years ago I can learn to do it now.
