The Windows entries seem to do the same thing. Is there anyway to remove one of them and edit the name of one of the other to something neat like WIN8 or Windows 8?
I downloaded something on linux today I wanted to use later on Windows. Although I could copy the files from my EXT4 /home partition to my WIN8 NTFS partition when I tried to use the files after booting Windows I was told I do not have the correct permissions. I can cope with only being able to access my Windows partition from linux and not vice versa, but I do not want to have to mess with permissions every time I want to transfer a file.
Also, with a shared data and program files partition the space I need for media and games is there waiting for me, and I will not have to worry that the partition I want to install games or copy media on is too small or too big because another partition is too big or too small - the space is just there waiting for me on the shared partition for whatever I want to do with it.
Would I know if I had secure boot configured?
What will this accomplish and how will I know if it worked?
