Create a USB Installer using LinuxLive USB Creator. Then, boot from the USB and install Ubuntu in another hard drive, or alongside Windows 8. To install it alongside Windows 8, use GParted, which can be found by clicking Dash which is in the top left and searching for the program. You must partition your drive and use the free space that you have created to install Ubuntu on.
