comment how to prevent against windows 10 being unable to boot (Dual boot Win10/Deb stable)
Maybe you are right that "fast startup" was re-enabled again by windows update (I didn't check after the update). I am very sure Debian doesn't touch the windows partition, unless there is something special going on with this EFI partition (I don't think I have any past experience with EFI partitions.. or maybe I just happen notice it this time at installation).

comment how to prevent against windows 10 being unable to boot (Dual boot Win10/Deb stable)
encountered the same problem once again after a windows update. Even with "fast startup" disabled. However this time I tried windows system restore, and after many attempts (like 6 or so) it magically worked and restored my system. But now a lot of a lot of applications are broken again (including all metro apps).. This is too unpredictable and risky, so I think I will just give up and live with windows only and a gimped virtual machine for Linux :(

comment virtual box guest OS randomly freezes or crashes at login screen
I seem to be able to boot no matter how I configure the parameters. The problem always starts at the login screen.. sometimes I get black screen instead of login screen, sometimes I get the correct login screen for some seconds and then it freezes, sometimes it renders the login screen incorrect and finally on very rare occasions I am able to login.. There seem to be no correlation between the crashes and the parameters

virtualbox is version 4.3.28. I don't know about 'VirtualBox Extension Pack', so I guess I have not loaded it :)

comment wierd drive errors on dual-boot system with sharedpartition and shared dropbox folder. How do I debug this?
Thank you for your inputs jtreser.. I'm a bit sad to hear that it could be a windows 8 problem :(.. But it sounds like it could just as well be a linux problem, if the "NTFS-3G utilities doesn't mark the filesystem as clean" (like they discusses in the post you linked to)... If the ntfs utility in linux doesn't mark the partition as clean, then maybe the problem can be solved by making a script which closes dropbox, unmounts the partition, and then run this script before shutting down or restarting.? (Of course FAT also sounds like an option, I just don't like the file size limit)
