I have made a new post for this problem .
I have been trying to install Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.10 ( 64 Bit ) on a Lenovo twist notebook. I have now installed Windows 8 ( Non secure boot non UEFI ) and I am following the instructions in the post below.
The problem is that Ubuntu doesn't recognise that windows is installed and if I ignore this, and proceed by selecting 'other' and go on to partition the free space on the hard disk for Ubuntu, I lose the Windows boot when it's completed. Using Boot Repair doesn't work either so I have to clear it all off using Gparted and start over by installing Windows 8 again. What do I have to do to get the Windows install recognised and then on to install Ubuntu ? Thanks,
