I have bought a PC with pre-installed Windows 8. When I booted to Parted Magic I see windows uses a separate boot partition. Is it safe to format it to ext2 and install grub there? Will chainloader feature work if I erase the Window's boot partition? Also, will there be any problems with Windows boot if I resize the Window's system partition?
Sory for a nooby question, I have never had a PC with pre-installed OS so I'm asking this in order to be safe, because there was no Windows CD with a PC shipped.
