In the boot parameters,I have tried various options. I have replaced quiet splash with 1. nomedeset 2. acpi=off 3. nolapic but nothing seems to work. I have AMD grpahics. – puneet Jul 9 '13 at 13:37

try this website I think you are getting this problem because of BIOS and as I remember you should use UEFI to dual boot win 8(I guess) but following the above mentioned guide the exact problem was solved on my brothers laptop

It is better to summarize the contents of any link you post so that the asker can solve his/her problem without following external links. – user323419 Oct 1 '15 at 16:51
