UEFI works differently, yes. Usually there is both UEFI mode and legacy
(BIOS) mode available. But, you should be able to use UEFI only - from
what it seems. Just go into the UEFI settings, and make the Ubuntu
Studio installation boot before Windows. With UEFI, you don't select
which hard drive to boot from - you select which OS.
Also, you should be able to get into your computer system settings from
GRUB (there's usually an option at the bottom) - if there's not, perhaps
you did not install it in UEFI mode.

You can read more about UEFI here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UEFI
