comment Boot-Repair made Dual Boot System unusable
Finally I gave up, I do not have a Windows CD for my OEM laptop, but there was a recovery partition which allowed me to reinstall Windows 8. Maybe I will try to update to Windows 10. Not sure if I want to setup a dual boot system again, this EFI stuff really sucks.

I hate this EFI stuff. Secure Boot sounds nice, but if it is so secure that it prevents you from booting then it sucks :-( :-( :-(

How would such a backup look like? What is an ESP?

Thanks for your help, the Boot-Repair people do not want to help unless you spend an undisclosed amount of money :-( Very unpleasing. I tried to put rEFInd on an USB stick an with UNetbootin, and was able to start it. It says when I try to start Windows 8: "Starting bootmgfw.efi. Error: unsupported while loading bootmgfw.efi".

Urgs, now Windows 8 no longer boots, do you have an idea @RodSmith ? Boot Repair says paste2.org/z0Nyfffy

I update the answer. The Super Grub Disk was helpful to start the system again, and Boot-Repair is useful to repair the Grub setup.
