I have a Lenovo Y510P laptop and managed to get Windows 8 and Ubuntu 13.10 dual booting. But then after grub was updated, I had to run boot-repair and now I can't boot into Windows.

When the computer starts and grub shows, I can boot into Ubuntu without a problem, but if I choose Windows from the boot menu, it just goes back to the menu.

I don't really know what kind of information I should provide, so please let me know if anything else besides what I posted bellow is needed.

My bios boot configuration is the following:

  • Boot type: UEFI
  • Secure boot: Disabled

Here is my grub.cfg file: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6501866/

Here is my boot info from boot-repair: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6501878/

change boot mode from UEFI to legacy mode in bios.Then ran boot-repair. –  Avinash Raj Dec 1 '13 at 0:34
    
Is that the only way? It used to work in UEFI mode before. –  Marjan Dec 1 '13 at 16:08

I switched to legacy mode. Now when I run boot-repair I get this: "EFI detected. Please check the options." I click OK, and then I click Recommended repair, and I get this: "GPT detected. Please create a BIOS-Boot partition (>1MB, unformatted filesystem, bios_grub flag). This can be performed via tools such as Gparted. Then try again. Alternatively, you can retry after activating the [Separate /boot/efi partition:] option." –  Marjan Dec 1 '13 at 18:40
