A rare problem but that happens sometimes is that after installing GNU Linux having installed Windows boot loader GRUB does not detect Windows preventing you from being able to enter it.
Despite popular belief, this problem has a simple solution that only 2 commands that must run on a terminal
sudo apt-get install os-prober
sudo update-grub2
