Did you do everything as it is in the guide? I've just done it and everything works correctly...
i just realised i did something wrong...

I can't solve my issue (can't boot into Windows) because I actually deleted Microsoft's EFI folder from the EFI partition so, could you please upload your Microsoft EFI folder? I mean, zip the whole folder that is in EFI\. I'll be so thankfull
here is my windows efi folder, those 2 files were inside efi.

I would try backing your efi folder and then boot from Windows USB and atempt for automatic repairs. Maybe Windows will create new one.

You can recreate Windows boot files with BCDBOOT.EXE. You can't expect EFI/Microsoft from another computer to work.

Thanks everyone, but as Rehabman said, I better use Windows to configure it again. The only thing is... how do I do that?

Boot to recovery media and use BCDBOOT.EXE from CMD.EXE. You can read about BCDBOOT from the help text or Microsoft documentation on technet/etc.

Cool :). Have you used this guide or you had to fix something not mentioned here?

I used this guide but I have some suggestions...

- Disable the system recovery threshold in BIOS. (sometimes it causes the machine to enter Dell's recovery mode)
- Rename bootmgfw.efi to bootmgfw-old.efi in EFI\Microsoft\Boot. Otherwise Windows Bootloader could bypass Clover.
- Don't defrag the drive. I didn't experimented this now but I won't do it, the problem is that before following this guide I had OS X installed and I did defrag the disk on Windows. OS X didn't boot, so DON'T DEFRAG THE DRIVE.


Also, the 4K variation is working 10/10 the only thing I didn't tried yet is battery life, I think it won't last as long as the 1080p variation because of obvious reasons but I should work properly.
