Boot to the Peppermint LiveUSB, open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo efibootmgr -o 2001,0001,0000,2002,2003
Now REBOOT but be ready to hit F12 to enter the boot device selection screen.

Is "ubuntu" listed now ?

If so, what happens if you select it ?

Thanks for your reply Mark, ran your commands in the terminal, after hitting Enter the response was: Boot entry 0000 does not exist? Ran with it any way
but still booting straight to WINDOWS with no mention of Ubuntu?  Any help is appreciated. Yours Norman

Okay, do you know how to boot the Peppermint LiveUSB in UEFI mode ?

Okay, when you boot the Peppermint 8 64bit LiveUSB, do you see the GRUB  menu .. or do you see this:

Not sure what you mean by "the laptop started talking" .. but it certainly wasn't me.

Anyway we can have a go at reinstalling the Peppermint bootloader...

Boot to the Peppermint 8 64bit LiveUSB .. from the GRUB screen choose "Try Peppermint" .. when you end up at the desktop, open a terminal by hitting Ctrl+Alt+T .. then run the following commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot/efi
then:
Code: [Select]
for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo chroot /mnt
then:
Code: [Select]
grub-install /dev/sda
then:
Code: [Select]
update-grub 
Now hit Ctrl+D to exit the chroot environment.

Now reboot to test.

Hi Mark, I followed your instructions to the letter but on reboot I still end up in Windows. The terminal reported everything as correct after each command?
I think its me taking the flash drive out at the wrong time when commencing the reboot? I'm rebooting from the whisper menu logout screen, after typing exit into the terminal prompt.

Is Ubuntu now listed in the UEFI boot selection screen ?

Is there anything in the BIOS about locking the EFI partition ?

Apology's Mark, 5. USB HDD twice is a typing error by me. It,s only listed once in the EUFI/BIOS window. re: the previous post.

Yours norman liddle.

Are you interested in deleting the Linux partitions, and the Linux EFI entry, and attempting another install ?

Let me know and I'll post instructions.
