I installed Ubuntu along side a pre-installed windows 8 system and every thing was working fine. However every time that windows 8 updates itself Ubuntu becomes unbootable. Infact I don't get the grub boot menu at all, it just boots straight to windows. It's not that big of a deal because I can run boot-repair and fix the boot problem, but it is vary annoying that I have to do that after every update. Is there a way that I don't have to run boot-repair after every update?

Thanks in advance!
