This question already has an answer here:
I installed Windows 8 and Linux dual boot on UEFI system. Windows 8 recognizes Linux (btrfs) partitions as unformatted D: and E: and offers to format them when I accidentally click on them. I'm used to that Windows doesn't see Linux partitions, at all.
Windows 8 doesn't recognize Linux ext4 pattitions on my laptop with (MSDOS table and MBR boot mode). Is it the partition table or the boot mode or why is that happenig?
