I have mavericks and windows 8.1 installed on my hard drive (mavericks was installed first)  made 2 separate partitions for them. I need to boot them in UEFI mode from my bios (i can only boot the windows so far) the problem is, every time i try to boot from the mac partition it switches over to the windows partition and boots from that.

 

for the record i have a dell inspiron 3520.

THIS IS NOT MY IMAGE, IT IS JUST SHOWING WHAT MY OPTIONS ARE

I use a usb boot loader. you can also install boot loader of your choice on OSX, then boot to Windows.

your last install is always the Master boot.
