How can I get Windows 8 to boot up after I installed Fedora on my PC?

I have tried to Install Fedora 18 alongside with Windows 8 on my HP Pavillion 15-e016tx.
This resulted is that I can only boot in Fedora 18 and Windows 8 is not booting at all.

At least I didn’t format the C: Drive and Windows 8 option is showing on GRUB Bootloader.
I want to boot Windows 8 and Fedora 18 alongside. How Can I Do It?

    you can try to reinstall Fedora under EFI mode

    you can try: Managing EFI Boot Loaders for Linux

    I guess you do not have a working boot loader. A boot loader allows you to select which operating system you want to boot into. I will now teach you to install GRUB 2 onto your computer through Fedora 18. Firstly, open up Terminal on Fedora, (you can find it around by putting your cursor on the top left hand corner of the screen).
    Type 'su' and key in your root password.
    Next, type in 'grub2-install /dev/sda'
    Next, type in 'grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg'
    Reboot your PC.

    When the GRUB Bootloader windows comes up, you need to highlight the "Win 8" entry, and hit ENTER. This should initiate Windows 8 bootup.
