Hi Yann,

I have installed Ubuntu as the only OS on that machine, Windows was not
even pre-installed.

  grub-efi does not boot

Status in “grub2” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  A standard installation of ubuntu-desktop on a HP Compaq 6200 PC
  installs grub-efi and is not able to boot after first restart.

  Grub complains about "no such partition". It is not able to load its
  own modules to continue with the boot process.

  After booting into a rescue system and manually replacing the grub-efi
  package with grub-pc and re-installing grub to the MBR the computer
  boots fine.

  Why is grub-efi installed automatically?
