Windows bootloader doesn't play well with Linux. Install Windows first if you ever do it again

Thanks, but that's dealt with now.

you could try having the drives as exFat

you'll need to install the exfat driver for linux as it isn't installed by default by most distros yet https://code.google.com/p/exfat/

Basically at this point, it's a big hassle to re-format all the drives, have to move around too much data.

So I am either stuck figuring out how to get it to work perfectly with windows, or deal with how it has been.

Thanks guys.
