Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I first installed Ubuntu and then I removed it and wanted to install it again. So, this time, I saw there were a number of partitions already there, so I deleted all except the drives I had my data in. Then I made a partition for Ubuntu and installed it, but now I am unable to boot Windows 8, which was already there.

I think I deleted the partition for grub also.

Kindly suggest to me what to do. Even UEFI settings is not showing any option for either Windows nor Ubuntu. I have now downloaded boot-repair and am able to boot Ubuntu but not Windows. Please give advice.

You can try using Boot Repair. If that doesn't help, post back with the URL that Boot Repair gives you; that points to a file with diagnostic information that will help us understand what's wrong. –  Rod Smith Sep 22 '13 at 17:08
