My machine was running Mint 15 KDE 64-bit (GPT partitioning, EFI bootloader without 'secure boot'), and I wanted to try Mint 16 before committing to it. So I installed it into another partition and told it to put GRUB into
/dev/sda6 instead of
I then ran the Ubuntu boot-repair tool on my Mint 15 setup, which detected and added Mint 16 to 15's GRUB menu. So far, so good. I can boot 16 by selecting 15's GRUB from my EFI boot menu (I'm using rEFInd for that), and having that boot 16 for me. But now I want to make 16 directly bootable from rEFInd - so it won't rely on keeping 15 around.
Is boot-repair still the tool for the job?
Mint 16 seems to know how to handle EFI booting directly, so I would expect it to have its own tools for managing the boot process. There's a KDE GRUB2 bootloader tool, but that just seems to manage the grub menu entries in my partition. It does have an option on its 'Advanced' tab to 'Install/Recover Bootloader', but that tool just lists out my partitions - and doesn't show my EFI partition. I guess, because I didn't set up EFI booting at install time, I also don't have
Any advice on how to proceed?
