UEFI boot option: File system not found - Ubuntu GNOME 17.04

Hello,

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5000, i7 3.1 GHz, etc~

So recently I changed the operating system from Windows 10 to Ubuntu 17.04 GNOME x64 using a bootable USB.

The installation was done with no problems at all but when it restarted, it wasn't booting into the hard drive.

I went into the BIOS settings to add a new boot option but it says "File system not found!"

There were 2 options before I installed Ubuntu, both of them were removed and now I can't do anything to add a new one.

I can, however, manually select internal HDD by pressing F12 when I turn it on, it then normally boots into Ubuntu and everything works fine.

Anyone knows how to fix this please?

Whatever you are showing on the boot device menu for Ubuntu, should show as first priority in the Bios for boot priority.

Hey,

Sorry, I figured it out ;o.

It turns out that I accidentally installed Ubuntu in Legacy boot mode and the BIOS boot sequence was set to UEFI.

I'll be reinstalling Ubuntu in UEFI mode anyways, I heard Legacy mode isn't good for Linux (or the best choice)

Thanks! 🙂
