If an OS is installed in UEFI/EFI mode then it will only boot in that mode. When dual booting if one OS is already installed in UEFI mode then then other OS HAS to be installed in UEFI mode.
Yes since Ubuntu version 12.04.2 we can install Ubuntu alongside Windows8 with secure boot 'enabled'. However, you MUST disable 'fast Startup', and you must also disable Fast Boot/Quick Boot from UEFI/BIOS setup. Also look in UEFI/BIOS if you have something called 'Intel SRT', you have to disable it as well to dual boot.
