I installed ubuntu 12.04 alongside with windows 8. After installing i restarted computer and I found my self stuck on GRUB screen(I dont know what to call that). So I press power button and restarted my computer and it booted windows 8 without any OS selection menu.

So in order to get Ubuntu in OS selection menu I used EasyBCD, and added Linux OS in menu with GRUB2 selected in kernel selection. Now again from OS selection menu when I choose Ubuntu I find myself on GRUB4DOS screen. Can somebody help me please?

PS: On my system windows 8 was not preloaded I have installed it.

This is the GRUB screen on which I am stuck after trying to boot in the ubuntu.
