    Windows 8.1 and Kali EFI

    I recently was able to create a bootable usb of Kali for EFI settings. However after installing Kali with its grub bootloader it looks like it didn't install over my sda. I have been trying to reinstall Grub2 on the EFI partition that Windows created but with no luck. Below are my outputs.
    Code:

    sda5 is the Kali installation and sda6 is the swap. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreicated. Thanks in advance
