I'm a Ubuntu newbie so forgive me when i need some time to understand your answers.

I installed Ubuntu server 12.04 besides a pre-installed windows 8.

When I start I get a grub interface with a couple of options.

when I don't choose Ubuntu will start loading and stops after a few seconds with the following error:

ini: unreadahead main process(295) terminated with status 5
adding xxxk swap on /dev/sda5. priority:-1 extents:1 across:xxxxxxk SS
(he number 295 change with each restart)

I don't know how to repair this. When I start Ununtu in recovery mode and than choose "resume" it looks like it works fine.

In grub I don't see anything of windows.

In the bios I disabled fast boot, secure boot

How can I fix this?
