  1. Disable secure boot
  2. Disable fast start up
  3. Turn of windows defender
  4. Created separate unallocated disc space for ubuntu

Can any one help me with this.

try this website http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/tired-of-windows-8-how-to-dual-boot-windows-ubuntu/ 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
