Looks like a kernel/firmware problem that later prevents efibootmgr from

  Latest Wily install fails when installing Grub 3x in a row. Checked
  md5, all fine

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Three attempts at installing Wily alongside Trusty 14.04.1.

  dd /dev/zero bs=16M count=128 to ensure all previous partitions and data are gone.

  Boot from Trusty 14.04.1 USB drive, select erase and install. Install
  without errors (none I'm alerted to or aware of, anyway)

  Shut down - not that no updates or upgrades were performed...

  Reboot from latest Wily 15.10 USB. Select "install alongside 14.04.1"

  Installer fails when grub installer is running for the 2nd time (?). I
  watched it run and create the 4.2 linux kernels and initrds. Upon
  inspection, they appear properly installed in /boot.

  I'll boot manually into both Trusty and Wily and attempt to reinstall
  Grub so they can share it and I can choose.
