Oh, my. 

Did you believe that grubx64.efi is a BOOTSECTOR?  :w00t:

I guess you should think also about shimx64.efi, consult this (long) page:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2147295

and this one:

http://linux.about.com/od/LinuxNewbieDesktopGuide/tp/3-Ways-To-Fix-The-UEFI-Bootloader-When-Dual-Booting-Windows-And-Ubuntu.htm

Basically, dual booting on UEFI is a total mess, depending on single machines/firmwares and specific version of windows (and *what not* :() but, as you found out, normally you cannot add a multi-boot entry for Linux/GRUB2 to Windows BOOTMGR BCD on UEFI, you need to make GRUB2 (or Refind, etc.) your main bootmanager.

Oh i'm do not know about osloader or bootsector in bcdedit command. I think that grubx64.efi just like grldr but grldr config menu.lst, grubx64.efi config grub.cfg.

I try with bcdedit add grubx64.efi before but no luck. Not remember exactly what error, but it fail on windows boot manager, I will try again and will report detail error. tks for your given links
