comment Preinstalled Windows 8 Not showing up on Grub 2, Ubuntu 12.10
Have you followed that question completely? Though you are not using windows 7 it do not make a 'great' difference. It does make a difference but not significant. You can still follow that post to resolve your windows 8 issue.

Then most probably you have accidentally deleted Windows 8 while installing Ubuntu. You might want to try supergrubdisk.org to check if it detects windows 8. You have to burn it to usb pen drive or CD. Use dd command in terminal dd if=/path/to/isofile/supergrubdisk.iso of=/dev/Xda where X is the name of your pen drive. Use fdisk -l to know name of your pen drive.

comment Grub not showing Windows 7 after Ubuntu 12.04 install
That probably means you do not have another operating system on that machine. That means your windows has damaged. Also when you repeat the command and get the exact same output you do not copy paste the same output again and again you just type that you are getting the very exact same output as you got in first attempt. Was the windows working fine before installing ubuntu? Downlaod supergrub from here supergrubdisk.org burn it to usb drive or cd and then boot into live mode and see if it detects your windows. If it does detect the windows try to boot into windows.

Wait. Do not post the same comment again and again. Read the manual for os prober. It should show an output similar to this: os-prober /dev/sda5:Ubuntu 12.10 (12.10):Ubuntu:linux

What are you doing man? your sudo os-prober do not output anything? It should output something. Atleast give the name of ubuntu. You are doing something wrong. ALso explain what is 'Doesn't Help' ? What doesnt help? WHat is the expected behaviour? What is the occured unexpected behaviour?

comment Ubuntu root sound problem
I hope you know that gui login as root is not recommeneded. I hope you know what risk you are taking. This is serious security risk and highly discouraged.
