    On some UEFI motherboards, when performing Ubuntu installation from UEFI mode the installer doesn’t automatically detects Windows boot loader, which is located in firmware boot manager (Bootmgfw.efi) that loads an EFI application that is based on variables that are stored in NVRAM. For this matter, Ubuntu won’t detect your previous Windows installations, but you’re save to continue with the installation as usual, as long as you don’t delete or mess-up windows partitions (you should see previous windows partitions when you get to Installation Type step). Finally, after Ubuntu installation finishes, enter your machine EFI settings by pressing the special key (F2, F11, F12 depending on motherboard specifications) and choose what OS should be loaded by default at boot time.
