EasyBCD not working... dual boot of Win8 and ubuntu 12.04

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So i installed ubuntu on my new laptop from Dell (i know, that was my first mistake.) I followed a guide saying to install manually and set partitions up manually. Everything installed fine. I could get into windows 8 and linux but i had to to hit f12 for boot manager. Well, the guide i had went into detail about using EasyBCD to have windows add an entry for dual booting. First i would like to say that i think this program is a huge piece of crap. Every time i open this program it changes my entries around. I crashed the BCD and i had to order a recovery usb drive from dell. It's crashed it 3 (Hardware)
