    windows 8 doesnt care about my partitions...

    Hi, i multiboot several os's on my laptop.
    after a complete lockup yesterday on 'another' os i had to force shutdown with the power button
    when i restarted in my normal windows 7 i had the 'dirty partitions' messages and waited for all the checking to be done.
    it happened again today (yes, i am still playing with drivers ) and i this time restarted into windows 8.
    it was a normal restart, and logged in.
    then i restarted into windows 7, again i had the 'dirty partitions' messages etc.
    i didnt try to do anything on the drives in windows 8 as i knew that the partitions would need checking.

    why is windows 8 not bothered about my 'dirty partitions'?

    The "Fast boot/hybrid boot" feature of Win8 is causing the disk check on your Win 7 partition. Disable the feature on your Win8 OS

    hi owenspal, no, thats not it. if i start and restart normally with win 8, win 7, xp ,server 2003, ubuntu or 'another linux based os' everything is always ok.
    its only that i had to force shutdown my laptop.
    then, win 7 will check all my ntfs partitions but win 8 will just start as normal, as if there is no checking needed.
    a fast boot is good but still should check for dirty partitions.
