This complete step-by-step tutorial demonstrates how to install Ubuntu 13.04 (should also work with any release later than 12.04.2) alongside Windows 8, in a pre-installed 64 bit computer with 'secure boot' and 'UEFI' systems enabled.
(Warning:The Laptop used is Sony Viao SVS1312. May not be same for all brands, so perform at your own risk. Please make sure to back-up your Windows 8 before this practice. And follow the steps in the correct order.)

Must have:
Ubuntu 12.04.2 or later (Should work with Ubuntu 12.04.2, 12.04.3, 12.10 and 13.10 as well; only 64 bit. Download them at http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop).

Ubuntu 64 bit iso DVD (How to burn an Ubuntu ISO file onto a DVD: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bur...)

8 - 20 GB free space, partitioned from Windows (by shrinking your available disk).

Note more than 3 partitions that are 'primary'. (http://askubuntu.com/a/316319)

In windows 8, disabled the 'fast start-up' (see how to: http://askubuntu.com/a/228069)

More details on previous experience, issues and results are explained at:
Boot-repair (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boo...) commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install boot-repair

This must be done when you boot Ubuntu DVD second time, in live mode and make sure you can connect to the internet.
After fixing the grub menu using boot repair, the third mount point in my case:
the mount point 'windows UEFI xxxxxxxxxxx.efi' works perfect to enter the Wndows 8
