I cant boot into deepin linux even though i installed into my hp laptop


I am using an hp laptop and i am using windows 8. I am trying to dual-boat my computer
I made sure I turned off fastboot and i disabled secure boot
and i made free space on my hard drive using disk management
I installed it on to that disk space and everything seem to went ok
but i cant find the os anywhere not even in the bios
i know it installed because it created new partition on my computer.
as it was installing it said it installed a boatloader but i am not seeing way to boot into it.

If you have windows 8, you likely use UEFI. Did you install Deepin UEFI or have an option to do so? You generally need to use UEFI for all operating systems OR you need to use MBR. They don't mix well. Try running the bootinfoscript from the Deepin install media and posting the detailed output here. See the link below.
