I have Ubuntu 14.04 installed and I want to install windows8.1 . I have created a partition for windows . I have a separate boot partition but I heard I needed a EFI partition.I still have 300mb unallocated space at the start of the disk. What should I do?

Please post more details, and in particular the output of sudo parted /dev/sda print and ls /sys/firmware. Without that information, any answer will be based at least partly on guesswork. –  Rod Smith May 31 '14 at 18:22
