I have two separate SSDs, and each contains an independently bootable OS - W8 and U12.10. From my extremely limited knowledge, this means each has a functioning EFI partition(?).
My default boot order (GA-Z68XP-UD3P mobo with UEFI firmware update) boots the UEFI partition containing windows first, but if I enter the
BIOS UEFI menu I can select the "ubuntu" entry to successfully boot ubuntu.
Both drives are GPT, and are EFI boots.
What I want to do:
Reboot Windows 8, re-enter W8 (this is happening now due to the default boot order). What I want to change, however, is to boot into Ubuntu if i reboot from ubuntu.
Essentially, I would like to work within one OS unless I consciously choose otherwise. Normally, I would not even ask about something I thought was impossible, but...
Why I think this is possible:
When trying EasyBCD to add ubuntu to the W8 UEFI bootloader, I noticed an "iReboot" addon or something that allows you to select which OS to boot into from within the OS. Note that I ended up not using the NeoGrub entry to chain Ubuntu off the W8 bootloader because I couldn't get much help with it.
Is this possible? Have I had too much coffee and gone insane?
Thank you all for your time,
