If you want to use GRUB follow my instructions .. if you'd rather use EasyBCD, let me know.

I entered all of the code just as you indicated. I rebooted and got the same thing. It went to the menu added by Easybcd. I selected Peppermint 4 and it then immediately went to the cursor grub> and stopped. Perhaps I need to remove the Easybcd menu option. Please advise what I should do next. Thanks. Jeff.

OK, try this:-

Boot to the LiveUSB, and run these commands in sequence:
Code:
sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt

then
Code:
for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done

then
Code:
sudo chroot /mnt

then
Code:
grub-install --recheck /dev/sda5

then
Code:
update-grub

then hit Ctrl+D to exit the chroot environment.

Now shutdown:
Code:
sudo shutdown -P now

remove the LiveUSB .. and boot to Windows.

Make sure the EasyBCD entry is pointing at /dev/sda5

Now try booting from the Windows bootloader

I did everything exactly like you indicated, but it continues to do the same thing. It goes to the grub> with a blinking cursor and stops. If I type in the word boot and the prompt it states that the Kernel must be loaded before booting. Sorry for being such a problem. Let me know what to try next. Thanks. Jeff

Did your Levono come with a recovery disk, because according to this:
http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discu ... d-p/674103

The only way around this (if you must dual boot) is to create a Win7 install USB stick and reinstall Windows in legacy BIOS mode

Though oddly, I can't see a GPT partition table.

==============================================

In the BIOS, is there an option for UEFI or Legacy BIOS mode ?

If so which is set, and what are the options ?

I did not get a recovery disk. The hard drive has a recovery partition that you use in an emergency. It wipes the drive and re-installs everything as it came from the factory. That's all it has that I know of.

The bio has settings for UEFI/Legacy Boot. It is set on both. It can be set up both, UEFI only, or Legacy only.

Also there is a setting for UEFI/Legacy Boot Priority. It is either UEFI First or Legacy First. It is set on UEFI First.

Those are the only UEFI settings that I see. I tried setting it to UEFI Legacy only but it does the same thing. Thanks. Jeff.

If you set the priority to Legacy first .. what happens ?

Also .. in Windows is there an application for creating a recovery DVD or USB stick ?

[EDIT]

Will Windows still boot in legacy only ?

I tried Legacy first and that didn't work either. I will have to check of the recovery disk option but I don't believe it has that. I had no idea this would be so difficult. Thanks for all of your help. Jeff.

See the edit above.

==================================================

And Microsoft said UEFI and secure boot are not barriers to Linux .. they're not, they're just barriers to dual booting on systems that came with Windows pre-installed in UEFI mode and without an installation disk :roll:

Yes. Windows will boot in any setting. It's almost like you can't stop it from booting. There is no recovery disk in Windows but there is a recovery media option in a Lenovo utility that I found. I have not tried it and I'd have to get a usb disk for that as I've used all that I have. I'm not sure how large of a disk I would need to get as it doesn't tell you. I think the recovery partition is around 14 gig. Thanks. Jeff
