I'm wanting to install mint 16 x64 next to win 8 on a secure boot setup. I used Windows disk utility to shrink Windows partition to leave free space for Linux. Not sure how to go about installing mint and keeping Windows bootable. When installing Linux and I get to install screen I usually use the manual install option and choose and create my partition there, my main question is where to install the boot info? Usually Linux defaults to sda1 but I'm concerned this will ruin my win 8 uefi boot, and If I can't boot to Windows I won't be able to use easy bcd. Would it be better to create a separate boot partition for grub? Just trying to research before running into problems. I watched a video where I believe they did the install within Windows and used easy bcd but it was in French and I had a hard time following along once they got to the easy bcd part not being fluent in French!
