So this is the story, when I dual booted ubuntu - it made like a dozen entries in the boot menu (f9 during blank post). So this is what im stuck with:
Ubuntu(alternating first caps)
*a few more of ubuntus*
Boot from LG USB Hardrive Mint
Chose EFI file
Choosing ubuntu gives a CLI grub (minimal bash-like line editing supported...).
Google suggested EasyBCD, but I don't want to break windows and lose my important files and programs, and the .bcd backup files only work form inside windows
Sorry for the long post, my problem is unique and complicated, and I'm not willing to take too many risks as this is a brand new notebook. Never had any problem with desktops before.
