Note: I think that this problem has something to do with the fast startup option in windows 8. (It writes files to the HDD when it shuts down to enable it to startup faster when booting)
I am running a dual-boot system that has both windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and windows 8 Pro 64-bit.
I have windows 8 enabled as the default operating system.
When I shut down windows 8, I cannot boot to windows 7 the next time that I boot up my computer. The screen simply goes black and it hangs up. When I remove power, return it, then turn the computer back on, windows 7 starts and runs a disk check automatically.
However, if I restart windows 8, there is no problem.
This is problematic to me.
Is this a bug?
Thank you for any help that can be given.
