    Hello! Very nice guide!! I would like to realize this configuration. Right now I have Windows 7 installed on a SSD and I want to install Ubuntu on a second hard drive.
    I have asrock Z68 extrem 4 as motherboard. Unfortunately I can’t visualize “Windows Boot Manager” in the Boot device list. Which might be the reason? Thanks in advance!

      Not sure, but that should not stop you from installing Ubuntu on the other HDD.

      Do you see Windows Boot Manager in the UEFI setup utility?

        Uhm, no! I can’t see Windows Boot Manager in the UEFI setup utility. Even there, I can visualize only the hard drive.

          But can you boot into Windows? If you can do so now. Then reboot and access the boot menu again. The Windows Boot Manager should show up. It happens on my UEFI computer too, so it’s not just specific to yours.

          And it’s not a Linux problem, but a UEFI implementation problem.

    When creating the partitions there is no EFi boot partition option available for me in the drop down list. I am on an alienware m17xr4 with windows 7 installed on a 120g SSD Drive. Trying to install Ubuntu on my 3rd hard drive in UEFI Mode.

      That happens only if you did not boot the UEFI-aware version of the installer. If you access the boot menu of the PC, do you see two entries for the installation media?

    Hi,

    Great guide! Will it work with win 8.1 and Mint 17 as well?

          The A55 series comes with UEFI firmware, so it should see that option. Did you check to see if EFI compatible ROM is enabled in the UEFI setup utility?

            Hi. It was in Legacy and I change to UEFI. I saw the option EFI boot partition and I did the instalation but the grub not recognized the windows.

            But what exactly do you mean by “grub not recognized the windows.” Can you boot into either OS?
