I have an ASUS UX-32A with Windows 8 Pro. I installed Ubuntu 12.04.02 amd64 and it installed OK & rebooted to Ubuntu. Thought my Win 8 was gone. I rebooted and went into the BIOS and it had Ubuntu as first on boot order. Then I changed the order to Windows8 & it came up with the dual boot screen. When I selected Ubuntu I got the error couldn't find wubldr.mbr. So I ran Easy BCD2.2Pro and here's the boot order listing. I also checked the BIOS settings & Secure Boot is disabled. What do I need to do to get back my Win8 dual boot screen working into Ubuntu?

There are a total of 4 entries listed in the bootloader:
