I have windows 10 installed and am seeking to dual boot with Ubuntu Studio. Alright so I was installing Ubuntu Studio on an Asus F555L type laptop. At the end of the installation it said "grub failed to install". I tried again and it did it again. So, I then grabbed a boot recovery iso that a friend recommended to me (can post link to that upon request) and attempted to boot of that to reinstall grub. The only problem is that I cannot figure out how to enable Legacy Bios support in the UEFI menu, in fact I don't think it's possible. So, my question is, does anyone know of how to boot of a live USB that doesn't support UEFI from UEFI firmware, or of any other method of installing grub without reinstalling an OS?


I'm assuming that you can actually boot from the Live CD. Ubuntu has more information here, but in short, after voting from the live CD:

  1. If you don't have a /boot/efi partition, create it
  2. Start Boot-Repair, click on "Advanced options", go to the "GRUB location" tab, and select the UEFI partition. Click Apply.
  • Okay thank you. I left out that I have windows 10 dual booted and wish to keep that, but that shouldn't change anything. I'll try that. – Steven Perszyk Feb 12 '16 at 1:32
  • Edit your question and add it. That way someone else might give you a better solution. – aprad046 Feb 12 '16 at 1:34
