    Do you have an Ubuntu CD/USB? You can boot it and reinstall grub.
    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sda2 /mnt
    sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt/boot /dev/sda

    post #8 should have repaired Windows. But if you just run the auto repairs, it also reinstalls the Windows boot loader to the MBR, overwriting grub. Better to use Windows command line repairs. And you may need chkdsk.

    Rerun Bootinfoscript or BootInfo report which includes bootinfoscript just to see if Windows repairs did add the Windows boot files correctly. But It seems you still need Windows repairs.

    Post the link to the BootInfo report that this creates. Is part of Boot-Repair:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Info
    Boot Repair -Also handles LVM, GPT, separate /boot and UEFI dual boot.:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair
    You can repair many boot issues with this or 'Create BootInfo' report (Other Options) & post the link it creates, so we can see your exact configuration and diagnose advanced problems.
    For info on UEFI boot install & repair:

    Im not sure about windows 8, but in windows 7 I could fix the missing windows boot files by booting the windows install disk/usb then going to a command prompt and running "bootsect /nt60 C:", then running update-grub should get both working.
