I opened a new thread on this. I was successful in detecting Windows bootloader and partioning 'alongside' with xubuntu 15.04. Both OSes are working fine in UEFI mode. The thing is I am not sure what happened .... whether disabling UEFI then shutdown, restart , re-enable had flushed a buffer or if using the F10 option. I think it was a combination of both. Nonetheless... it's the first time Iv'e seen this work with Windows 8 bootloader without irreversible repair work. I'll try to document this a little more comphrehensively after some rest. All you U+1 testers .. thanks for encouragement , input and help.!
