Creating Dual Boot on EFI + GPT (not as easy as it sounds)

I have my single 1 TB HDD partitioned as UEFI + GPT.
So I installed Windows 7 and afterwards Ubuntu 14.04. Both of the OS are x64. But I can only see Windows 7 in the bootloader. I can't see GRUB, no matter how many times I fix it from within Ubuntu. I have to manually select "Ubuntu" from the list which comes before BIOS comes (by pressing F11. (http://i.imgur.com/3LX7mgp.jpg).

When I open EasyBCD on Win 7, it shows me many options, but in actual I can only see one entry, of Windows 7 when I boot my PC. So what is wrong? Is setting up Ubuntu in boot menu difficult in UEFI + GPT?

Following are the entries shown in EasyBCD:
Code:
There are a total of 13 entries listed in the bootloader.
