Comment:

 You need to run the Boot Manager (in the PC-BSD Control Panel), then go to
 the "GRUB Configuration" tab and enter a custom GRUB menu entry for
 Windows like this:

 {{{
 menuentry 'Windows 8 (ada0s2)'{
 set root=(hd0,2)
 chainloader +1
 }
 }}}

 If your windows installation has a separate boot partition like my Windows
 7 system does, then you need to make sure that the entry is pointing to
 the proper boot partition and not the data partition.


 I am re-assigning this to Kris and downgrading the priority to see if we
 can get Windows 8 autodetected in the future though.
