Power down to Unplug the data cable plug on all other drives except Win8. Reboot into DVD and try again.

Do you wanna do a Clean Install - Windows 8 to that partition with all other drives unplugged, then add Linux using EasyBCD?

Why do you want Windows 8 anyway? You could just delete it and repair the Linux bootloader.
