    It's generally triggered because of disk errors or something faulty with the drive.

    I remember running 8 To Go on a flash drive, near the end, it did the same thing because the flash was crap.

    On a hard drive, there might be something wrong with it. If you can, go Computer, right click on the D drive, Properties, go to the Tools tab, and click on Check and Scan Drive. There might not be anything wrong with it now since it already did that at boot. Laptop hard drives are scary time bombs, since you move the laptop while its moving, it can get a bit damaged, not a lot to make a difference, but over time that adds up and causes issues. Believe me, I've had that happen many a time and seen it happen many a time. Scary stuff.

    Exactly... it fixed at boot and now say nothing to fix :

    P.S. It becomes C: when booted from Windows 8.

    That's good!
    Oh, ok! I though you labeled it D instead of C, I was wondering about that.
    How long have you had the hard drive in that laptop though? It always concerns me when Windows triggers a scan disk at boot up. From my experience, when a laptop drive does that, six months is the average diagnosis. Or, it could just be a glitch with Windows. Still....scary stuff.

    Well, it has been almost 2.5 for these drives and it happened first time.

    I think there must be some issues with chkdsk aid to the dual / triple boot installation.

    Hmmm... 2 and half years on a laptop drive is usually near a mid life crisis from what I've seen before.

    But if you have that situation with the triple boot, could be something there.

    Well I'm now planning to degrade to dual boot. Can you tell me how to uninstall Ubuntu drive from create and format disk partitions of Windows.

    Because as far I know, Windows doesn't simply let us read the Ubuntu partition. Right?

    I don't see any reason to think there is something wrong with your Ubuntu installation.

    There seems to be something odd about win 8 startup - particularly in multiboot .

    It manifests itself in different ways so I haven't been able to discern a pattern yet.

    However, I suspect you might have fewer issues if you use the text boot menu instead of the graphical one.

    Hello Simon, that's what I also thought . Let's forgot Ubuntu, becoz it has nothing to do with it.

    Next, It may be due to classical boot menu, an since I have installed Ubuntu (triple boot), I have newer seen the new graphical boot menu. Reason is obvious since boot menu for Ubuntu is grub .

    So you may be correct for this reason that boot menu is responsible for the cause .
