Ubuntu – Windows 8 UEFI does not boot

boot-repairuefiwindows 8

I've just bought a new Toshiba laptop, on which Windows 8 is preinstalled. I've installed Ubuntu Gnome 13.10 and GRUB2 correctly detects Ubuntu and Windows. But the strange problem is that when I try to boot Windows 8, it appears the following error:

file path:/ACPI(a0341d0,0)/PCI(2,1f)/UnknwnMessaging(12)/HD(2,200800,82000,a8d996409dcfe211,a8,59)/File(\EFI|Microsoft\Boot)/File(bootmgfw.efi)/EndEntire
error: cannot load image.

I've tried to solve using boot-repair, using the auto-correction. But never has changed. Here is the log generated by boot-repair: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6426642/

How can I fix this?

  • This looks like bug #1091464. Turn off secure boot in the bios system under the section boot, and you should be able to boot Windows.
