I dual boot Windows 8 with Ubuntu 12.10, and when I turn on my laptop, I see the GRUB bootloader which is fine. I see options for Ubuntu, Advanced Ubuntu options, Memory Test stuff, and finally Windows 8 (loader). When I select Windows 8 (loader), instead of going to the windows 8 loader, I simply see the GRUB bootloader again. It's kinda like I have the "option" to pick Windows 8, but GRUB doesn't like that option.

Has anyone encountered/solved this problem? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Kyle


This little tool should help: Boot-Repair

You can use it either from your Ubuntu disc, or via a dedicated rescue disc.
