Bug Description

I installed UBUNTU 17.10 - Dual Boot Windows 10, with GRUB2 as Bootloader on my expensive Toshiba Laptop - s50t-b (model #). Now Bios is basically useless, no change boot order, no load defaults, no system clock. what do I do?????

I'm hitting 'confirmed' on this one to quiet the bots, it looks entirely too familiar to bug 1734147 (Lenovo hardware) to be coincidence.

Please do run the apport-collect 1736827 command if you can.
