    I did, but now I am on Windows 8 single boot. There are lots of ways to do multi boot, but I guess the (THE) right one is to let Windows to take care of all boot, that is, install Linux boot manager into a partition, copy the boot sector to Windows, and add it to the set of boot options with bcdedit.

    Yeah Ubuntu is run through WUBI so i'm not that worried about Ubuntu, I was just wondering if anyone had run Win 8 through dual boot to see if that had been turned on at this point of the public beta yet. You answered my question, it has. :)
    Thank you.
