messed up your partition table and master boot record, probably from grub being installed, uninstalled, UEFI bios booting from Windows 8, etc. Can try booting with windows disc and going into repair options and either let it try to fix it itself, or getting a command prompt and making sure the partition is active with diskpart and there is a fix mbr tool you can use from the command prompt, i forget the exact command, but you can google it.
