Never heard of UEFI working without specialized partition. It might be hidden for Windows, but it is there.

I doubt that is possible unless you create an efi partition for both as they both need to be either UEFI or both MBR. An overview of EFI dual-boooting with windows and Ubuntu is at the link below.
