I have HP notebook which came with freeDOS (MBR partitioned with two primary partitions). I have installed Windows 8.1 in Legacy mode by creating another primary partition. Yes, in Legacy mode though my notebook supports EFI. Then installed ubuntu 14.04 in 75GB unallocated free space.
After installation, GRUB2 is showing DOS and ubuntu options but not windows 8.1 option. Then I have installed BootRepair and ran recommended repair as suggested in forum (http://paste.ubuntu.com/7658680), but still it is not recognizing windows.
After googling I ran fixMbr from command prompt in windows live session for fixing windows issue. Then, the system was directly booting to windows (All my files were there). Then, through ubuntu live lession I again ran Bootrepair. But, the same issue repeated. GRUB2 is only showing DOS and ubuntu options but not windows 8.1 option.
So, If I fix windows issue, ubuntu is not booting. If I fix ubuntu issue, windows is not booting. I am only able to run one OS at a time. But, I need both. Please help me out..
Thanks in advance..
