Apparently ideally on Windows 8 you have your boot device (which realistically should be a SSD) initiated as a GPT type disk, in the scenario where you are running a UEFI BIOS, not MBR type disk. Most people will have it initiated as MBR . GPT allows for fast booting options, but also means you have to re-initiate the disk (and lose all its contents) if you want to go back to Windows 7 since Windows 7 doesn't support GPT booting.
Basically, MBR is BIOS (old style) type booting, GPT is UEFI booting. Basically booting MBR with a UEFI bios is booting in compatibility mode which is why the fast boot options don't work like they should. Or at least. this is what I believe to be the case!
