Ubuntu: Ubuntu 14.04 get Windows 8 to show up



So I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on what used to be Ubuntu 12.04. I am dual booting with Windows 8.1. I haven't been able to access Ubuntu 12.04 since Windows 8.1 did some updates a few weeks back.

Grub shows up and I can't see windows 8.1. How can I add Windows 8 using Boot Repair?

I figured out how to install boot-repair in Ubuntu 14.04 by doing this workaround: https://bugs.launchpad.net/boot-repair/+bug/1267702

Most important thing: How can I add Windows 8.1 to the Grub menu using Boot Repair?

I am not an expert by any means. Thank you.


Make sure Grub2 was installed without problem.

sudo apt-get install grub2-common  sudo update-grub2  

This will show up as entries. If the entries are marked with everything currently installed on the boot disk, everything is good and you have no errors. Below is a tool designed to make your grub boot manager look the way you want to and boot the way you want to.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install grub-customizer  

You can open by searching on dashboard by pressing the super button.

in tab "General Settings"

visibility check "show menu"
