Booting Linux on Windows 8 machines

Dear Sir,
Could you please clarify the following ?
Is the problem encountered on machines
with Windows 8 pre-installed ? What
about machines that come in DOS mode,
or motherboards from various vendors
(ASUS, MSI, Intel etc.,) -- do these
have the same issue as well ? I have
a machine which uses a MSI motherboard
and runs Fedora 15, and I am planning
to purchase a similar board for Fedora
17 or 18. Please advice.
