comment Is it 'bad' to read of a drive while writing onto it? Can you read and write 'simultaneously'?
As the answers have said, there will be absolutely no damage. However, multiple access, whether reads, writes or a combination thereof will slow access times slightly as the drive heads will continually have to reposition.

Tanks for your help, @Useless. If you edit your answer to say "enable legacy boot in BIOS", I will award you the answer ;-)

comment Harddisk reinstalled - can data be recovered?
Before you do anything else - power off the machine and remove the drive. Even when Widows is "doing nothing" it is writing temp files & potentially overwriting your old Linux data. Put the drive into an external housing and try to recover using another PC. Whether it succeeds or not, you have no learned the value of regular backups & will be doing so in future, won't you? ;-)

comment Make a specific program see the file-system differently on Windows
I know that you asked for a general solution, but if you find that you have to accept a Winamp specific solution then hopefully you can just do a global edit on the log files - or is the data in a database? If so, which?

comment Make a specific program see the file-system differently on Windows
I don't know of any such, but one possibility might be to sandbox the desired program (Winamp or wherever) and to make the symbolic link in the sandbox (or use a virtual machine, just for the program). That sounds like a bit of effort, so only you can judge if it is worth it to you.

comment Laptop Turning On and Off
"every time the laptop turns itself off, the hard drive makes a click sound!" - remove your hard-drive and connect it externally to another PC. That will let you know if it is a drive problem or not.

comment my laptop is not detecting wifi
Are you using a web interface to change the SDID? (like 192.168.1.100? That will change it for now, but if you don't save it then of course it will revert on restart. Click the save button
