grub config file isnt properly set up. Mount your ubuntu partition in windows and check the `/boot` folder and see if grub config is set up nicely or not. Make sure vmlinuz is at right folder and initrd and stuff are set up correctly

If you aren't able to get it to mount, just plug in your ubuntu bootstick and mount the partititon. Use either gnome-disk-utility or just access /boot on the current ubuntu live session via `sudo nautilus`. It should work. As this is a fresh install you should try reinstalling it again from scratch.

It's likely that you can't access windows now as its stuck on the grub screen. Access your BIOS and switch the UEFI boot order such that windows boot manager is first. But even that is likely to have ubuntu as the only entry. Not always, but there is a small chance.

If you can't access your ubuntu bootstick because of the above reason, try disabling UEFI boot from the BIOS, and then boot using the boot device selection menu.

Later on, you might want to try out the Refind boot manager, you can install it through ubuntu and you will always be able to probe any new UEFI/non UEFI devices you insert for operating systems in case the BIOS order is overwritten again.

And you aren't likely to get much tech support here because this place is filled with mostly illiterate useless enginiggers whose only aim in life is to be a wealthy wagecuck. Go to an IRC channel like freenode's #ubuntu.

I'm assuming that yoiu are using vanilla ubuntu here. Substitute with appropriate default applications for your distro

LinuxReader is retarded at best, and its free version doesn't even give you write access. Nothing else even comes close.
OP should reinstall Ubuntu like
>>6646 said or reinstall grub.
