After installing Win8 and then used WIMI to install Ubuntu. The operative systems work fine, now to my trouble.

I Can´t mount win8 partition in Ubuntu 12.04. Is this a known error? How can I fix this?

WIMI? Do you mean Wubi? – VedVals Nov 29 '12 at 14:39
try to execute this sudo mount -t ntfs-3g - o remove_hiberfile /dev/sdXZ /path/to/dir, where XZ is your partition. for example /dev/sda1 – titusjaka Nov 29 '12 at 15:15
remove hiberfile fixed everything! Great thanx – Insu Dec 2 '12 at 12:16
