I am the developer of Boot-Repair, OS-Uninstaller, Clean-Ubiquity, and Linux-Secure-Remix. I try to help people where i can, especially on boot/GRUB issues.

No, you just need to run Boot-repair from a live disk. See help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair#Getting_Boot-Repair

comment can I use both ubuntu and windows 8 when I download online?
Wubi is deprecated, and as it is incompatible with GPT, it will fail with most recent computers (especially the ones with preinstalled Windows8). See the big warning at ubuntu.com/download/desktop/windows-installer

Glad you found a solution. If you boot /EFI/ubuntu/shimx64.efi do you get the GRUB menu too?

After burning the ISO file, insert the disk, reboot your computer, the Boot-Repair menu will appear. Choose Recommended Repair. If any issue, indicate the URL that will appear.

OS-Uninstaller allows to remove an OS only if there are at least 2 operating systems available.

Senjai: please enable UEFI in your BIOS (UEFI firmware), then run Boot-Repair and indicate the URL that will appear.

Braiam: when used from an installed session, Boot-Repair reinstalls GRUB without chroot. When used from a live-disk, it uses chroot to reinstall GRUB. Boot-Repair can install GRUB in many situations not covered by your guide (UEFI, RAID, LVM, purge, separate /boot ...). Senjai has a factory install of Win8 so he needs UEFI.
