    first thing which comes to my mind is,

    is this UEFI ?

    Windows 8 is UEFI boot as default if I am not mistaken.

    Try boot into BIOS and set the first boot as the drive with the UEFI icon attached. That's what my Z77 board shows. If using F8 I think you select the drive with Windows Management and not just the drive.

    That's just off top of my head. I can check and see what the exact wording is.

    Does this help any ?
