    This "fast boot" feature can be disabled from the power (power button) options in Win8 control panel, and at least for me it fixes the inability to get to BIOS setup on power on, and hopefully it also fixes the Win7 partition data corruption too (still investigating). But if you disable it, the boot times seem to become quite slow again. I'm fine with that though.
    Here's something related that I found Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8 I think you're right about the fast boot thing.
