comment How do I make my system to prompt me for Windows and Ubuntu, instead of directly booting to Ubuntu?
to convert Ubuntu in UEFI mode, you need first to set up your BIOS in UEFI mode, then use Boot-Repair. Don't use B-R if it says your BIOS is in Legacy mode.

comment dualboot windows 8 and ubuntu on seprate hdd
Please indicate your Boot-Info URL ( help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Info ). Windows8 probably does not entirely fit in your 8GB SSD.

comment Dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 8 - no operating system found
The Boot-Repair tool cannot change disk partitioning, so for sure it did not change your disk from GPT to MsDos. Between you 2 logs, we can see that you have tried to install MacOS, this is probably what changed your disk partitioning.

comment Change Legacy mode to UEFI after installing Ubuntu
You can find some examples here. Some firmwares propose the same option to enable UEFI boot on both HDD and USB/DVD at the same time. Others propose 2 options: one for HDD, another for USB/DVD.

comment How to install grub on this system
It will, but the GRUB menu will not allow you to boot Win7 (the Win7 entry in GRUB will fail). GRUB cannot manage a mix of UEFI and non-UEFI systems.
