problem in booting windows 8 when dual booted with centos 7

Post by sn26 » 2015/01/02 12:40:38

Hello,
My laptop specifications are DELL INSPIRON 15 4 GB RAM,750 GB HDD.It is preinstalled with windows 8 in UEFI mode.I was trying to dual boot centos 7 with this windows 8.
I successfully installed centos 7 with minimal desktop.In grub I can see centos 7 option but can not see windows 8 option.When i run the command "fdisk -l" I am able to see
NTFS partitions.After inserting installation CD of windows 8 I chose recovery option,there I can see my data.
Kindly tell me how to recover my windows 8 without loosing my windows 8 data as well as installed centos7.

You need to manually add an entry for windows to the boot manager. Search the forums, this has been asked and answered before.
