Windows 8 Consumer Preview 64bit
Installed Ubuntu,Win8. Now if I select Win8 in Grub it won't start.

Can someone please help me.
I installed Windows 8. Then created a new partition and installed Ubuntu on it.
But now if I want to select Windows 8 in Grub, it waits a couple of seconds and then restarts Grub.
Has anyone an idea how to get Win8(Consumer Preview) working again?

Thanks for every answer :)
