I try to mount a NTFS partition in nautilus, and it refuse to mount it and suggests resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), the problem is that I have already disabled fast restart and there is no options to hibernate in Windows 8.

Try running the Windows tools to check the partition (e.g. chkdsk, I think). –  Renan Feb 9 '13 at 13:35
Did you do as told? Do as @Renan says. –  vonbrand Feb 9 '13 at 14:38
Voting to leave this open -- he's asking for a unix solution to the problem. –  Shadur Feb 9 '13 at 20:44
I don't know why you claim it's impossible to turn off hibernate in Windows 8. The method is the same since Vista (just verified it on a VM): powercfg -h off as administrative user. –  0xC0000022L Feb 10 '13 at 20:26
