I Purchased a Dell laptop, with Windows 8.1 pre-installed. Followed the instructions of http://itsfoss.com/install-ubuntu-1404-dual-boot-mode-windows-8-81-uefi/ to install dual boot.

After the install, i wasn't given the option of which OS to choose from, it booted directly to windows so i followed their last instruction of


bcdedit /set "{bootmgr}" path \EFI\ubuntu\grubx64.efi

Now, it loads directly to Ubuntu, and i can no longer access Windows. Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated, i'm freaking out LOL

Thanks

I cannot believe those instructions say backup is optional.

Best to see details:
Post the link to the Create BootInfo summary report. Is part of Boot-Repair:
