Find the log file in app data in windows windows explorer.

My guess is you didn't select the option to boot alongside windows...

You can always get a second hard drive, but I doubt you want too.

Ask this question on Ubuntu forums, the devs and geeks there can help you more than here.

Or it can also be the format of the hdd... It seems Linux couldn't stick windows 8into a partition...

I'll get back to you if I learn more.
