I just bought a new notebook which came with Windows 8 (+UEFI) which I will use to play some games, however, I want to have Fedora (18) linux available for some stuff.
I tried and failed to install it in two different ways:
Using the available disk space, I created a
/boot/efi and a
/ partitions. This way, Fedora works just fine while grub is not able to start Win8 (it says it is because it can't find Microsoft's efi files).
Because of the previous situation, I then started using the default EFI partition as
/boot/efi, so grub could be able to find all files needed. Instead of this, grub is now not even able to start Fedora normally.
