In this case that would not work either so i am glad that I went the 'upgrade' route. I saw a kernal was still heldback so perhaps I may have to upgrade that separately too - I will look into it but last time I 'played' with a kernel despite what the update manager was saying it screwed everything up!! In this instance they did not which I think is why grub would not update as it was 'heldback'.I have checked update manager and it shows 3.16.0-38(3.16.7-ckho) 'Installed' and 3.19.0-32 as 'Loaded' 'Recommended' & 'Installed'. I also had new packages installed during 'dist-upgrade'.However I am not a geek (no disrespect meant) so not really sure.I also have grub-customiser which I use from my secondary system (last OS installed) and use it for the odd glitch. As I mentioned Synaptic holds back various updates and they usually vanish with an an upgrade.
We also know about such documented cases with both X9SCM-F and X9DR7-LN4F motherboards with Ubuntu Launchpad. If there are missing UEFI boot entries after the core update they can be restored as described below after restarting the system.
This is the output from 'update-grub' which I ran after changing the config.:[email protected] ~ $ sudo update-grub Generating grub configuration file ...
This forced the grub updates which were being heldback (plus quite a few other upgrades). I also had new packages installed during 'dist-upgrade'.

There`s a lack of good tutorials and howtos in Portuguese. If you use 1st method (grub4dos) after getting back to your Ubuntu distro and reinstalling grub you need to remove “grldr” “grldr.mbr” “boot.ini” & “menu.lst” from your Windows “C:\” partition.
