I am using ubuntu 13.04. And want to have windows 8 pro on a separate partition of 150 GB along side ubuntu.

I did the same and installed windows 8 pro x64bit UEFI but when I try to repair grub to get ubuntu & windows 8 both in same page, ubuntu is able to boot from there but windows 8 is not. Windows 8 is just showing loading windows files and system reboot itself.

Please help, I tried multiple time re-installing windows 8 and grub but still no luck.

Does Windows show up in the grub menu? At what point does the boot process fail? Is there any error message? Also please rephrase your problem as a question – especially the title. –  David Foerster Oct 5 '13 at 10:00
