Re: [PLUG] UEFI Boot order

Excellent, a simple fix. Be sure to let us know how it goes.

Also, I hope my answer about legacy boot and a reinstall helps. If you need to reinstall, the choice of UEFI/legacy is entirely up to you. While UEFI has some theoretical advantages, for a single boot machine they're not a major concern.

If the former, it's not likely a UEFI install. If the latter, make sure to grab 14.04.1 or newer (14.04.3 recommended) for some early UEFI fixes Canonical applied. Specifically I think 14.04.0 had some Secure Boot issues, which could be relevant. <<


I was providing the list verbatim from the BIOS. I am using a thumb drive, not a USB HD or SSD. Per the other reply, I am going to slave the drive to another machine, I just did not realize it used a standard SATA connector, I thought I needed an adapter.
