Alright, so here is what I did, I went into my BIOS and disabled UEFI and installed Windows 8 without UEFI being enabled, and so now it runs with the legacy BIOS. Now I have another issue, when I boot from a flash drive with a 64-bit version of Ubuntu on it, it doesn't work. Also, if I do get it to boot into the flash drive, when I try to install Ubuntu it doesn't detect my Windows 8 installation and shows that the Windows 8 partition is free space. The only thing I haven't tried yet is booting from a disc, mainly because at the moment I don't a blank DVD. Ok, so I need to know why or how I can make Ubuntu detect my Windows 8 installation so that I can safely install them side by side like I could with Windows 7.

Can anyone help?
