askubuntu question | kid’s stuff

first of all i am not criticising the questioner but i am criticising my own answer to the questioner.
link to the question.
http://askubuntu.com/questions/427843/grub2-dual-boot-issue-gparted-help-please/
this question is a cool way to test a beginners ability to install an operating system from the scratch.
by the questioner’s screenshot I learned that the windows default boot-loader is stored in the c drive, which is quite different from the usual method which is by creating a separate partition for booting the OS. (this method is being used by several Linux based operating systems) this method has various benefits like encrypting the whole main partition except the boot partition, setting boot-loader passwords(with encryption). in case of crash occurred  to an OS, this method saves us from losing the control on all other Operating Systems whose boot settings are stored in the c drive.
I still think that there is a legitimate reason for this issue in windows. possibly windows hates dual-booting.
