    You are booting with UEFI.
    Your efi partition still has Windows boot files, but you only have Ubuntu installed. So from UEFI menu the only UEFI entry that should work is ubuntu.

    But Boot-Repair also converted it to a secure boot type which renames the Windows files. If your system was Windows 7 you should not need that. Do not know if that makes any difference with a system that does not have to have it?
    You can remove the secure boot renaming by unchecking the secure boot option in Boot-Repair and rerunning it.

    Boot-Repair - Updated Jan 1, 2013 to not rename first time, but rename if first time Windows does not boot. Post 706 and 711
    Boot-Repair copied /EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi to /EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi (in case the BIOS is hard-coded to boot into /EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi or secure boot
    signed GRUB file shimx64.efi.

    to undo just do the opposite of this:

    To perform this, just run Boot-Repair --> Adv options --> tick "Backup and rename EFI files" --> Apply
    Then reboot the PC to UEFI/BIOS and chose ubuntu, and please tell us what you observe.
    Please enable SecureBoot in your BIOS, then run Boot-Repair --> Advanced Options --> "GRUB options" tab --> tick "SecureBoot" --> Apply.
