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

comment Ubuntu UEFI Windows 8.1 Dual Boot
Glad you found a solution. If you boot /EFI/ubuntu/shimx64.efi do you get the GRUB menu too?

comment Unable to boot windows 8 after formatting ubuntu partition and reinstalled ubuntu
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.

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.

comment How to make my laptop bootable to windows 8 and ubuntu 12.04?
Never seen any report about such issue :) If you can reproduce, please could you create a bug report HERE ? (please indicate the Boot-Repair log, and the output of update-grub)

comment Unable to boot Windows 7 after installing Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS
Incorrect, as Boot-Repair has already done update-grub (see line 1082 of Xeus log). Dillmo, please could you indicate cases where typing the update-grub command fixes a similar issue?

Unfortunately incorrect answer, as Boot-Repair already did an update-grub (see line 931 of Hugo's log paste.ubuntu.com/6464375). Line 938 you can see that there is already a Windows 8 (loader) entry in the GRUB menu.
