Very quick and simple question but just want to make sure before I go ahead and install. I understand that Ubuntu 12.04.2 comes with the necessary keys to install alongside windows 8 with UEFI and Secureboot.

My question is can I just install via CD from boot and choose install alongside windows and choose partition size in this setup or do I have to partition the drive in windows before installing Ubuntu?

I would use the advanced partitioning tool in the installer, it works.

!!! Warning: If for some reason Ubuntu doesn't recognize Windows, do not try to partition it. This will ruin your data !!!

As far as I remember, the 64-bit version recognizes UEFI, but 32-bit doesn't.

It's recommended to use the WINDOWS partition manager to create the empty space in which to install Ubuntu. Apparently GPartex doesn't see windows partitions in some circumstances.
