Hi:-

You mentioned :" so I partitioned my HD from windows"

How exactly did you partition your HDD from Windows?
Did you mean that you shrank your Windows 8 partition?

With most of the laptops that have Win's 8 and the UEFI you have to go into the BIOS and disable the secure boot. http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2013/03/12...-in-uefi-mode/

Elementary OS was built on Ubuntu 12.04-
