I am really interested in programming, so i tryed to install Linux. I used a bootable USB Flashdrive to boot the iso and started following the german tutorial from the Arch-Linux Wiki. I have a 120 GB SSD with Windows on it and a 2TB HDD which I shrank down 200GB to make space for Linux. I used
gdisk to create a root and swap partition using gpt. After rebooting to check if my date on the 2TB drive was ok, I couldn't boot windows and the Arch-Linux ISO bootscreen looked different. I finished following the tutorial and after syslinux didn't work I deleted the Linux partitions and tried to boot from my SSD which gave the error: "Reboot and Select proper Boot device ..."
To check wether or not my data was ok I changed the partition type of the 2TB harddrive to mrd and installed Win 8 onto it which worked fine. I can see all my data and I even need the Admin password of the new Windos install to access user files. Has anyone any idea, why my Windows isn't booting? Help would be apreciated.
