Hello everyone! I will list the points:
1) Win 8(installed first) and then Ubuntu 12.04, both on separate drives
2) If Ubuntu is 1st boot drive in Bios, I get GRUB at Startup
3) I can then start Ubuntu, but if I had chosen Win 8 from the GRUB list, Win will not start up, instead I am thrown back to GRUB menu, where I can start Ubuntu.
4) I have the Boot-Repair disk, and I see "Advance Options, Repair Windows", but I don't want to create more chaos!
5) Windows Boot Manager says: File:\boot\bcd , Status: 0xc00000f
"The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors."

How can I successfully boot Win 8 from the GRUB menu? BTW, if I make Win 8 the 1st boot drive, then I will get a "Preparing Automatic Repair" message, and "Attemting repairs" appears with no further actions.

Thank you in advance for all your help!

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64

My System

We need to know what system you are on before we can provide troubleshooting steps. BIOS settings are different for some systems with Windows 8, especially if there is UEFI involved.

 Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)?
 Age of system (hardware)
Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS?
Video Card
Power Supply - brand & wattage

 Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom)
