    Is your current boot mode set to UEFI?
    Please confirm this first

    Try to fix manually.

    On Install screen select "Repair my computer"
    from list of the options select "Command prompt"

    if there is no such option look click on "Advanced" or something like that and then find command prompt.

    type following commands line by line into command prompt and hit enter after each one:
    bootrec /fixmbr
    bootrec /fixboot
    bootrec /scanos
    bootrec /rebuildbcd

    If there is any error while executing these commands, then please share output/error here.

    Good! it looks the problem is resolved then.

    In order to get back into your old windows follow these steps:
    1. shut down PC
    2. pull your USB stick out of PC
    3. boot into BIOS.
    4. change settings back by setting boot mode to UEFI ( secure boot ) as it was before
    5. hit F10 to save and reboot
