comment What compressed archive formats can Windows 8 open natively?
Thanks for the answer. I want to know simply because I like being able to open ZIP files in Windows Explorer, and I want my system to open archives this way whenever possible. It's a matter of comfort. I did come across that Wikipedia table, but unfortunately, it doesn't distinguish between formats that Windows can open on its own and formats that require third-party applications.

comment How do I replace GRUB with the Windows 8 bootloader without losing access to Linux?
Turns out the reason why I couldn't use bcdedit was that my Linux /boot partition was located at the start of the hard drive. Apparently Windows doesn't like that. All I had to do was delete it, move my Windows partition to the start, then run bootrec /fixboot and bootrec /fixmbr to inform Windows of the change. Now Windows lets me use bcdedit. My Linux installation is still inaccesible (and without a /boot directory to boot - no pun intended) but I'll try reinstalling GRUB to the Linux partition and running EasyBCD on Windows to make it accessible from the outside.

comment Laptop freezes upon booting Linux distributions from USB flash drive
I still don't know why I was unable to boot from the previous USB drive, so if anyone has a more specific answer, feel free to post it.

I had no idea it could be disabled. I managed to boot Knoppix using a different USB drive, but when I'm done I'll try the previous one again with UEFI disabled, just out of curiosity.

That worked. I can't believe I hadn't tried it before. Thanks!
