This is an UEFI system. Ubuntu mess it up a little bit by changing some UEFI/NVRAM stuff, (you might void your warranty by doing this) you will need to short the CL1 and CL2 pads under your RAM to fix it. You might also need to run a BIOS update from Windows (or FreeDOS - see the comments) to repair the “BIOS setup” you enter by pressing F2 while booting.
Updating the bootloader (grub) may also break the boot menu, so be careful with updating if you can't be without Windows until you have access to tools.
This is how i suggest you to installed this computer:
The UEFI part is a bit messy, but once everything is in place it seems to work pretty well.
