Turn off Fast boot on Japanese Windows 10

# yum install epel-release
# yum install ntfs-3g
# mkdir /mnt/data # To mount ntfs partition as /mnt/data
# mount -t ntfs /dev/sda3 /mnt/data # To mount /dev/sda3 partition

To mount the NTFS partition permanently, add the following line to the /etc/fstab file.

Add Windows to boot menu

# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

It seems that grub will find Windows boot loader. If not, append this code to /etc/grub.d/40_custom before running the command above (assume that Windows 10 boot loader is at /dev/sda1)

menuentry "Windows 10" {
   set root='(hd0,1)'
   chainloader +1
