I just bought an ASUS Eeebook E403SA. I used the pendrivelinux YUMI tool to create a live USB with Ubuntu 16.04.2. I booted into a live session via the USB without issues, and opted to wipe the drive and replace the whole thing with Ubuntu. The install completed without issues.
However, the computer now won't boot into Ubuntu, and the BIOS doesn't detect the harddrive at all. I can see the file system when mounted in the live session, but the BIOS can't detect it.
I tried using Boot Repair to manually reinstall Grub to every drive on the computer. When starting it with a Live USB with Grub installed, I end up in a Grub Rescue terminal. It enters this terminal with an error where it can't recognize a drive, referring to this missing drive as a UUID.
The Eeebok doesn't really have a harddrive per se, but rather an internal MMC storage. I don't know if that matters. Also, I (stupidly) did not backup the original drive image, so I can't factory reset it.
So, any ideas?
