[SOLVED] Windows 8 not in grub after installing Arch

Hello, i am new to arch and today i installed it on my machine. I installed windows on 2 primary disks and arch on 3 logical. The grub loader i installed on dev/sda but now when i boot to grub i can not see windows there. I red somewhere that i have to go to the drive where window's boot folder is and rename it but here comes another problem - obviously i can not do it with the normal terminal but the drive is named in Bulgarian which i can not type in the native linux console(i hope you know what i mean). This is how my drives look like :

Removed full size image -- Inxsible

Any ideas how i can fix it or something like that would be very helpful. Thank you all in advance.

P.S i can reinstall windows if needed.

Did you add Windows to your GRUB settings? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Grub#With_Windows
