http://superuser.com – Looking at online sources its speculated that, for UEFI/GPT systems, this is not possible. My setup is a Windows 8.1 OS on a SSD and a 1TB SATA HDD for data/music/pictures etc. I recently wanted to load Archlinux and decided to resize the 1TB HDD to allow 100GB for linux. I was able to install successfully and I am able to boot the UEFI linux install via BIOS. However to switch between Windows 8.1 and Linux, I have to press DEL on reboot, get into BIOS, click on the BOOT menu and then click on arch_grub entry for the boot partition on the 1TB HDD. Ideally I'd like to get the Windows 8 Boot (HowTos)
