    Windows 8 Boot problem after installing Ubuntu


    Since I installed Ubuntu onto my computer, I couldn't boot the Windows 8. I tried installation DVD to repair, but it didn't work. I tried these solutions; solution1, solution2, none of them worked either. I tried refreshing, it stopped at 37%.

    When I use diskpart to list partitions from command prompt via the installation DVD, I chose the right partition, but I couldn't activate it.
    How can I fix that ?

    I have some personal files at C Disk, I wonder will they be kept in any folder in new installation, for example "windows.old", or something like that ?
