What version of grub and/or os-prober are you using? It may simply be
that you're using a version which is too old to know what "Windows 8"
is. Alternatively, it may be that there's no reliable way to
differentiate between Vista and 8 from a booting perspective (though
this is unlikely; what if you were triple-booting Linux, Vista and 8?
You'd want to be able to differentiate the two).
