[CentOS] HP Envy EFI problem after BIOS update

I had to boot my HP Envy into Win8 for the first time in ages this morning.  
When I did that, it installed some updates including a BIOS update.

Once this was all done, once again the GRUB boot menu was gone and it booted 
straight into Win8.  Using the advanced boot manager options in Win8 I 
managed to get the EFI boot menu up and chose Ferdora 21.

It was only after Fedora failed to boot that I realised that this was wrong.  
Some time ago I had replaced F21 with Centos 7 and the three Centos 7 options 
were the ones that should be available - plus the Windows 8 boot manager.

I have managed to boot into a Centos 7 Live KDE image. In this ran efibootmgr 
which shows the same thing.  I can fix the boot sequence, but that will not 
get me back the Centos entries.

Can anyone suggest how I can do that?
