Last time I did this I was on windows 7 so I just repaired the MBR with EasyBCD but when I try there is no option for Windows 8, Only Windows 7.

So my question is how do I repair the MBR without the installation CD.

Consumer preview will expire. Without legitimate installation media you are out of luck.

You could add a small /boot partition and use that to keep grub in tact without using Ubuntu until such time as you purchase Windows 8.

Sounds Off-topic to me though (I have a Windows 8 problem and no installation media).
