If in doubt, it doesn't hurt anything to just install it to all of your drives. Other machines without W7 have had no such an issue. For me, "dpkg-reconfigure grub-efi" does not fix the problem. Then run this command in your terminal Once this linux command is executed then a box will appear called Boot Repair.
Fixed the following way: -Boot from a pendrive -Mount my root file system (where /boot is) -run: "sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt/
No, it does not. There is nothing wrong with grub itself; it is entirely in how it is installed and upgraded. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.17 (MingW32) iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJUT53uAAoJEI5FoCIzSKrw+HcH/0xMFD4/ofzVeqnSSzMmJdZv 21Du5KsyA+fBek5nfBU5/QsDz3iOaUnhV6AKl/PhG4uV12Y9BNaCvBbDjq0WcKgM i8mGKeh9MMcYj1mAUfG8mUx1RIfBB86EdAzSyypQSW6ar2b1/IZ1Pc/75tZzpgV0 PwXtbeA7Tnmt2iVcex9ksgv//HjGzySSxW9blf/mJ8geHYTyfHtqjNILm6Y4120n ItVBO23hF85FoJglU4x3Dqp55PHh0yHx7gFug0QScvlPD8aCf9LN2ij3AJUtoxVJ WNqK1UUIz6paHgbtBtWu858KqwMHVAKPhu7m/NGBDS4EWoeN+pYYHz1XWGbZEGI= =ZcIS Phillip Susi (psusi) wrote on 2014-04-18: #24 Once again, this is not a bug but a misconfigured system. Grub Rescue Commands I also figured out the "dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc" command might not apply to those booting with UEFI enabled on their system.

I haven't shut it down yet. Peter Totleben, O.P.
If you fixed it correctly so the package system knows where it needs to reinstall it in the future, then you won't have the problem again.

I think this bug can't be considered invalid because we have supposedly done something wrong manually. http://lwdrm.com/not-found/error-symbol-not-found-grub-rescue.php The message informed me that the disk that grub was originally installed to was no longer present. You can NOT demand from a user to run dpkg commandos, or even know about dpkg. It uses Windows 8 and Ubuntu (14.04 or older if I remember correctly). Super Grub Disk
That points to this bug. I have also seen this attitude in many other bug reports. If you wanna p*ss off users back to Windows or OSX, that's the way to go... Source There was no default chosen for me (I expected to find /dev/sda as default).
Windows only boots from gpt drives with UEFI. I followed the instructions provided in some of the comments above by some other victim of the issue. My solution was to start Ubuntu with a USB stick (it does not matter which version).
When it did the equivalent of the dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc, it found that the original disk grub was installed to was missing (true) but then decided NOT to install grub anywhere. Additionally, I can load Windows 8.1 just fine. Canonical only care's for Ubuntu mobile. The installer automatically files a bug report when this happens so it can be investigated.

I wondered why the Ubuntu people were packaging releases (and LTS releases even!) with beta versions of the bootloader.
If Windows is pre-installed you could not reinstall Windows in BIOS mode as it is only configured and licensed for UEFI. As a sanity check, I shut the system down and attempted to boot it again. Then, I noticed that both Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10 include the 2.02beta version of Grub.
