I hope someone can help me. I have just managed to install SparkyLinux 3.6 (xfce flavour) along with my Windows 8.1 installation (same hard disk). I had previously left unpartitioned space after primary Windows partition. During SparkyLinux setup, I created two partitions (one 4GB for swap, and one 28GB as primary for Linux, ext4). Apart from that, setup asked me for a partition at the beginning of the disk in vfat format (for grub I think, don't remember exactly), so I selected the one of 350MB Windows had created before the main large primary one. Installation finished without any issues, but... after restarting, bios couldn't find a bootable device. So I had to put the live cd again, and with the boot repair utility SparkyLinux has, I could repair (well, sort of) the boot issue. Now grub starts, SparkyLinux boots up, but I cannot select to boot with Windows. Primary windows partition is there, untouched, as I can see my files from SparkyLinux, but I don't know how to add the selection in grub.
I just only expect I was clear enough...and that some charitable soul is willing to help me ;-)
Thank you in advance!
