    Windows 8 dual boot problem?

    I installed Ubuntu 12.04 immediately after installing Windows 8 on my Dell laptop. The installation was successful. I installed Ubuntu to entirely different partition with swap area. And made the remaining harddisk free space. But on restarting it directly got into Win 8 without showing the grub. What should I do? Whether to reinstall grub from live usb or something else? I need to know whether Win 8 Secure Boot and UEFI cause problems for installing of Ubuntu?

    Best to see details. Did you install both in UEFI mode or both in BIOS mode?

    Post the link to the BootInfo report that this creates. Is part of Boot-Repair:
