This question already has an answer here:
Hello everyone I'm new to Ubuntu so I probably messed something up. When I installed Ubuntu on my windows 8 hp laptop it did not give me the option to install Ubuntu alongside windows so I installed it using the something else option.
I think I may have messed up during the partitioning but I'm not sure.
When I turned on the PC it at first directly booted up Ubuntu without showing me the grub screen, eventually I was able to get the grub screen to appear but it does not recognize windows. I ran boot repair and I was given this url : http://paste.ubuntu.com/6701216/ . Boot-repair did not solve my problem.
Thanks for any help guys I really want to be able to run windows alongside Ubuntu and access the files that are in windows.
