i'm not sure that it will work like that because as you mentioned in your question, sda1 will not be for windows but dellutility. I always do a complete format since I never use the utilities that come with the computer anyway. Another question: you do have a win8 disc/dvd/usb right? because as you should know, changing the partitions can mess everything up and you might have to install everything again. If you have your installation discs you can always do it again until you get it right.

that's right. Even your data partitions can be logical, both for windows and linux.

comment Making Kubuntu start on command line
Update: I tried both with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="" and GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT= and in both cases I can see the text of everything loading up, but when it's time to login, the graphical login page is still there. So, so far no luck.

@Arno: when you say "remove" from grub file, do you mean "just erase" what is after the "=" sign? or do I have to put something else in it's place (like "false" or "none").
