I looked at one of my machines with a desktop installation of 64-bit Win 8 after reading your post about this issue corruption issue. I do not have any option in "Shutdown settings" related to fast startup, hibernation or something similar. Nothing at all. I can see that your post was made a year ago, and I am wondering whether it might have been corrected already by Microsoft in one of the updates? Was your announcement in reference to Win 8 desktop?
