Per your thread here.

Unless I am misreading your post It cannot be done. You cannot have MBR and GPT on the same disk. MBR and GPT are both partition tables. You can have one or the other, not both. GPT booting is not recommended on computers with a Legacy BIOS.

 

You could have two separate disks, one booting Windows 8 MBR and the other GPT. GPT can boot from a UEFI capable computer. If you were to boot MBR on the UEFI computer the setting in UEFI would need to be changed to Legacy or CSM boot.
