So im running windows 8.1 64 bit on an aspire v 11 touch. The EFI on this has caused me many problems to say the least...

So I install the following using Wintousb:
Windows 8.1 iso installer (efi installer)
ubuntu 14 64 bit iso (efi installer)
ubuntu 14 32 bit iso
Runtime recovery cd iso image

The installation runs fine, and in QEMU the grub menu comes up, and everything loads fine.
When I try to boot from a computer, it automatically loads the windows installer, rather than the grub menu...

I checked the configuration of the grldr and menu.lst and everything points to the right place. any ideas?
The grldr only support for booting legacy BIOS-based computer, this is way grldr works fine in QEMU (QEMU usually worked in BIOS mode).
I am pretty sure that the physical computer which you used for testing is a UEFI-based computer, so it automatically loads the windows loader, rather than loads grldr.
If you want to boot this drive on a UEFI-based computer, please try to boot it in UEFI Compatibility Support Module (CSM) mode.
