    Re: dual boot

    Boot into Ubuntu, open a terminal and enter "sudo update-grub". This will regenerate the default GRUB menu to include entries for MS Windows. When you reboot, you should see a GRUB menu with selections in it.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.

    Linux box is better than a woman because when you screw up with it, at least you get an error message!

    Boot into Ubuntu, launch a terminal and type
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    . Hopefully, upon reboot, you will see an entry for Windows.

    That tells me nothing useful. If you want help, you need to provide us some details -- like what IS happening when you try to boot.
