This question already has an answer here:

I have installed the operating system successfully on my laptop that has Windows 8.1 pre-installed. (With this guide)

After restarting the computer, Windows 8.1 loaded instead of grub bootloader, so I have searched in Google and found a program called easyBCD. I followed this simple guide, but when I get to the screen where to choose between Windows and Kali Linux there is a problem:

I choose Kali Linux and then I get an error that "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software..." message...

I wanted to load grub bootloader but I can't seem to make it work.

How can I load grub bootloader? And if I can't, how can I make my machine to load Kali Linux at all?

Ok after whole day sitting on the computer (way before I opened this question), I found a solution, this guide here is just great! way more updated then the official one and more reliable.
