I just bought Surface Pro 2 (with Windows 8.1 Pro) from the store yesterday and tried installing wubi (right before them) and ran into some boot up issues. Luckily I was able to enter Windows again and uninstall it. Anyone who can help me with this.

Thanks in advance

Wubi does not work with computers pre-installed with Windows 8 and higher. There is no way around it. Your only choice is to do a full install.

See Installing Ubuntu on a pre-installed Windows 8 64 bit system (UEFI supported) for details on how to do it.
