Dual Boot Issues Windows 8 (SecureBoot ON)

asked 2016-02-26 16:23:32 -0500

Hello there,

I'm just looking for some information on how to successfully get Grub to boot into Windows 8. I'm using Fedora 23, and installed it beside a pre-installed version of Windows 8 a few months ago with Secure Boot enabled. Fedora boots flawlessly, and my Windows partition is definitely intact. It shows up in the Grub menu, but when trying to boot Windows it can't seem to find the mount point. I'm sure this is probably a pretty easy fix, just point Grub in the direction of the correct mount point, right? But, as with most things that languish for months, life has gotten in the way and this is the first time that I've had a moment to tackle this issue head on...Also figured that it'd be easier to just ask here than sifting through tons of forum posts. I'm presented with this screen when I attempt boot into my Windows partition (attached). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

does the bootloader file from Win8 (last line on your last picture) still exist?

As far as I know, yes. Windows 8 is definitely still intact according to gParted
