I decided to install a dual boot on my windows 8.1 machine. Everything was working fine, but I had the unattractive grub booting option. I wanted to have the good-looking graphical windows boot selection to choose between windows and linux. I used easybcd on it and added a new entry for ubuntu, specifying the partition "/boot" that I had created when installing ubuntu. I applied the changes by clicking on Write MBR or similar option. And I now can't boot into Windows.

Here is the error displayed: http://i39.servimg.com/u/f39/13/84/06/30/10877310.jpg

What I have tried so far: -Boot repair (recommended): didn't change it, except that I have more entries in grub -Boot on a recovery key and run /fixmbr /fixboot

I ran the bootinfo script and I get this (quiet long sorry): http://pastebin.com/iqp4Jf25

Any idea how to recover boot options for windows ? Thanks in advance for your help :)
