Why are you attempting to activate Windows with KMSpico? Please be aware of the forum rules.

It's difficult to say what might be causing the long boot time, the possible causes are too numerous. Although a slow boot and missing DVD drive might suggest some common factor like a driver for the ATA controller. See if you can find or generate a boot log and check it for errors. Let us know if you see anything unusual.

Blank screens don't tell us much. Was there anything unusual in your boot log?

http://askubuntu.com/questions/221835/installing-ubuntu-on-a-pre-installed-windows-8-64-bit-system-uefi-supported which way did you go on on installing operating systems it should be windows first then ubuntu but then if uefi is involved there is a few more steps to go through https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI but then with the different bootloaders used by windows and ubuntu ie linux it can be a rela puzzle to figure out

Re: DVD drive not working in windows 8, 8.1 on my PC 80 80

did you try downloading drivers for the DVD rom or check in device manager on the windows install to see if it is showing the drive at all?
