windows 8 comes with UEFI secure boot enabled (UEFI which substitutes what we have known as the BIOS) which prevent unrecognized source to boot or Linux

But Fedora 18 have support for the UEFI boot see here

as your disk drive is not showing then disable the uefi secure boot (it may be cause of that )

you can off the UEFI secure boot in some easy step they are

1 ) while holding shift key click on restart option (from power)

2 ) windows will show you option then select Troubleshoot

3 ) select advanced options

4 ) select UEFI frameware settings then disable it after restart

Here is the video

This isn't Secure Boot or Windows 8 related - the media has booted fine, that part is working.

So with that out of the way, this appears to be a device driver issue - it's just a plain old bug, most likely. I suspect this is the same issue as , so following up there is probably the best thing to do.
