Q: Dual boot ignores EFI devices

EamonMy pc does not boot anymore in EFI/UEFI mode. I had grub installed and was able to boot on both Windows 10 and Ubuntu Linux (14.04 LTS).

Install process, commands, codes, and data are the same. The only thing that changes is the hardware. — Bayram 1 hour ago
I hear you claim that. I've said so myself before. And I've been wrong. When you refuse to volunteer information it's impossible to help. — vidarlo 1 min ago
Some people are never wrong...
it's extremely easy to believe everything's identical
@Fabby I'm never wrong. It's just the world that doesn't work in the correct way!
Yup... UEFI firmware, hard disk, NIC chipset, ...
@vidarlo Easy people accept the workd the way it is.
Difficult people insist on the world adapting to them.
Therefore: all progress made by the human race can be ascribed to difficult people...
it's always worth attempting to change the world
@vidarlo Do or do not, there is no try...
>:-) ;-)
9:01 PM
fatalistic world view!
@vidarlo Huh? On the contrary: I'm a very difficult person!
(And proud of it: changing the world every day)
Except when it comes to giving up smoking!
9:03 PM
that was easy
I just stopped smoking. When I had walked around with a pack for two weeks I threw it away :D
@steeldriver Please don’t add answers as comments. ;-) — dessert 1 hour ago
@vidarlo Good for you!
@dessert Good one! I'm going to shamelessly plagiarize it!
@Fabby oh please, feel free to do that, we have so many answering comments
nearly every one from steeldriver for example :)
@dessert but... it's so easy to add an comment, and let someone else evolve it into an answer :D
9:28 PM
feature request: ask a comment author whether they are actually rather writing an answer currently (and give the option to switch to the answer field) as soon as their comment exceeds a certain character count.
@dessert I used to have one when I was new to this site: Could you please convert that comment to an answer so that schmucks like me who go around hunting for unanswered questions don't have to look at this one any more? **;-)** (And I'll upvote if you drop me a note and it's a good one too!)
9:43 PM
@Fabby my car is the loudest when I honk ;D
@dessert :D :D :D
@Fabby that’s like holding random keys pressed until the computer beeps in pain I suppose :)
I always perceive that as a cry, like that of a nazgul.
@dessert That's why I network them. Hopefully the other computers in the network will learn to behave when I punish one!
10:15 PM
@vidarlo Starred!
10:31 PM
@fabby you never played xbill, eh?
10:43 PM
Xbill is also a colloquial abbreviation for Crossbill.XBill is an arcade style game for the X Window System. The game features a bespectacled character known as "Bill" (a spoof of Bill Gates). The goal is to prevent Bill's legions of clones from installing "Wingdows", a virus "cleverly designed to resemble a popular operating system" (a parody of Windows), on a variety of computers running other operating systems. It was very popular among Linux gamers at the end of the 1990s, beating out Quake, though not Quake II, as Linux Journal reader's favourite Linux game in 1999. == Gameplay == Th...
sudo apt install xbill
whats the prefered way to run gui things as root on Ubuntu these days? pkexec?
@vidarlo sudo -H seems good: askubuntu.com/a/270019/507051
Nice, thanks :)
@vidarlo Nope...
@vidarlo pkexec is also fine though, esp. if you want a GUI password prompt

@PerlDuck Sorry for copying the bra idea, the cup size just matches too well. At least I only use it to cover my balls.
