Cannot boot into Windows 8 after successful Ubuntu installation

http://askubuntu.com – Recently I've tried to install Ubuntu in a partition of a hard-drive that also has Windows 8. I've done this on a Windows 7 computer before, so I figured this would be done similarly. I installed it using a Ubuntu USB drive. When I attempt to boot in Windows 8, a quick _ gets displayed, and then I get moved back to the boot screen where I can select what I wish to boot from. Here is my fdisk -l output: Disk /dev/sda: 256.1 GB, 256060514304 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 31130 cylinders, total 500118192 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 b (HowTos)
