So, after having resolved the issues with the installer not being able to find the target disk, I was able to install Freya 0.3.2 and I am now able to start it by entering the BIOS menu where I can choose to Legacy boot. This takes me to the GRUB menu, so the boot process is currently a 2 step procedure.
The reason why I have to use the BIOS as a boot manager is probably because I installed GRUB to the wrong location. As it is now it works OK, but it's of course a bit cumbersome and not very pretty, so I'd like to set up a boot loader. "While at it", I thought I could just as well try to set up something that looks good. Preferably it should be something that matches the sleek and polished look of elementary itself, so a black & white text-only GRUB menu is something that I'd like to avoid.
I'd love to have something that looks like the "El Castillo" BURG theme, but as far as I know, BURG doesn't support (U)EFI (correct me if I'm wrong)
So, what options are there?
- GRUB with grub-customizer?
