Can you use the "Try Ubuntu" option? Does that work? – Elder Geek Jun 15 '14 at 14:22
You can't do it automatically like that with Windows 8 and UEFI. Follow the above directions. – Seth Jun 16 '14 at 1:15

Don't do install alongside windows instead install seperately on another Partition using a live USB this will install a grub menu first then you will be able to get the windows and Ubuntu both working because windwos 8 overwrites the MBR make partitions with windows as you will know exactly what are you doing...
