    You did overwrite some Windows partitions. You have to leave those as essential for Windows. You will probably just have to delete swap and make that the Windows system reserved again or just make swap a bit smaller as the Windows system reserved is not large.

    Microsoft suggested partitions including reserved partition for gpt & UEFI:

    I will shrink the SWAP partition then and see where I can go from there.

    Ok sorry for the delay, work interfered with life I resized a partition and called it MSR but it looks like it isn't used. After I used it I booted up my Windows 8 CD and clicked repair, it repaired the boot file I guess and my laptop then would only boot into Windows. I then ran the Ubunutu live image and ran boot repair but it gave me back the same GRUB as last time with no Windows boot entry in the box. Windows is working and so is Ubunutu I just not together.

    Here is a new Boot Repair output:

    Did you turn fast boot off in Windows? That is hibernation and Linux NTFS driver will not normally mount a NTFS system that is hibernated to prevent damage.

    WARNING for Windows 8 Dual-Booters
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1953674
    It defaults shutdown to a hybrid hibernation/off state for fast boot

    But then files may be corrupted similar to Windows 7 Hibernation:
