I installed Ubuntu 14. 04 on my Lenovo ideapad 580 (4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, i3, Windows8 preloaded). I switched from UEFI to legacy mode. Then I had a grub issue and Ubuntu won't load at all. I tried boot repair tool and typed the commands in terminal from various links on internet and voilà Ubuntu started loading normally but as it appears maybe it overwrote my Windows boot loader.

Now grub2 shows Ubuntu only not Windows at all. I can enter BIOS and change the boot priorities but making Windows on top won't do any good. I think boot repair tool has done this.

I do not have any CD. I don't want to loose Ubuntu at all because I have employed a large amount of time messing with it and installing.
