You need to be able to analyze the data in some useful way to be able to do the right thing of course.
Or just post up the info with the command that pbear mentions and we'll see if someone can make heads or tails of it.
I thought that I did post the data from pbear's command.
My head is spinning (confuses because I'm a total newb on how this stuff works)
When I press F12 to show the boot devices, all that shows is
When i go into the UEFI and look at the boot devices, the list is something like
USB hard drive
When I disabled the first ubuntu, the computer got "pissed"
booting into a windows recovery looking screen, and complaining about a system32 file. So, I re-enabled the ubuntu boot device. Should I try disabling the other one?
ON the grub boot menu, one of the options is "Windows Boot Manager."
In thinking about this more, my guess it that the problem is stemming from an external USB drive that I have plugged in. It's a sata hard drive in an enclosure, that has Windows, OS X, and Linux partitions. It was reformatted (well before my OS was installed on this computer), and not used as a boot device since the reformat. I use the drive for back in time.
Also, sometimes my OS internal drive shows as sdb, instead of sda.
Here is what that external drive looks like. Say, maybe one of those small partitions at the beginning is up to no good. Maybe I didn't get rid of all of what I should have after reformatting several months ago.
