Came up with this.http://i48.tinypic.com/21a5if.jpg I was still able to boot into window 8 however unable to boot in ubuntu..

Wubi doesn't work with UEFI. If you bought a new computer with Windows 8 preinstalled it likely has secure boot, which means UEFI and GPT disks. And wubi needs a MBR partition table disk.

So the answer is, you should uninstall Ubuntu (from Add or remove programs in the Control Panel) and then install a normal dual boot using a 64-bit Ubuntu desktop disk.
