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.

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

Try running sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdXY, where sdXY is the name of your device.
