    Hello my friend,
    you can install windows 8 and still use your favourite windows 7 OS.it is possible to do this,just download the windows 8 RP.
    after downloading WIndows 8 RP.then you can install it by using DVD or USB.
    BUt USB installation is faster because copyinf files from flash is faster rather than DVD.
    you can do this by using the tools provided by microsoft

    you can get tools at: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/...usbdvd_dwnTool

    NOw install the windows 8 in different drive other than Windows 7.Both OS should not be in the same drive.

    ALL THE BEST.

    In a computer you can maintain two OS easily.
    First you have to create another disk partition for new OS for instance you have Windows 7 in C , then make another partition out of C , name it
    as F drive.
    Now insert Windows 8 CD/USB and restart your PC and while booting press F8.
    When you are asked which drive to be used for installation , select the "F " drive.
    Rest will be similar to normal installation . So in this way you will have both OS , but you can use only at a time.

    hello . .

    P.C enables us to use multiple Operating systems !!

    As Both 7 and 8 are from Windows ; it makes out task easier . .

    Just See that the partition is done accurately . .

    after doing the partition firstly install windows 7 . . through main course !!

    later install Windows 8 Release Preview through other device like external HDD or USB

    good luck !!

    Follow these steps:

    1.CREATE NEW PARTITION:

    -->Before you start back up your data,you are going to be formatting drives and install OSes,so any thing could go wrong so use "disk management" to set the disk partition.

    2.INSTALL WINDOWS 8:

    -->If you get any prompt like "Press any key to boot from DVD" then hit a key from keyboard.
    -->Just pick your language and "INSTALL NOW" and Choose "CUSTOM" when asked which type installation you want.

    3.MAKE WINDOWS 7 DEFAULT:

    -->when you first boot you will notice a graphical boot menu between window 7 and windows 8 in that window 8 will be default.
    -->Now,in that you manually set window7 as default.
    -->On the boot menu, click on the button at the bottom that says "Change Defaults or Choose Other Options", and click "Choose the Default Operating System".
    -->From there, you can pick Windows 7 from the menu.
    -->From now on, your computer will boot into Windows 7 by default, but if you feel like playing around with Windows 8 that day, you can just pick it from the boot menu.


    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!

    dear friend,

    you can install both Windows 7 & Windows 8 together on your computer.

    At first make a separate drive in which you have to install the new OS.

    Buy a genuine windows 8 from market or from Microsoft official website.

    Now insert the OS DVD to the drive.

    You don't have to go the Bios setup.

    Autoplay the DVD & install Windows 8 to the newer drive.

    After successful installation you have to restart the computer.

    At the time of start up,choose the OS version you want to open.

    Yes you can install windows 8 release preview with your windows 7 ultimate in your computer.
    1-First download the setup file of windows 8 from microsoft website.
    2-After download ,run the set up file.Here is the most important thing ..choose any other drives to install the new OS rather than installing it on the same drive where your windows 7 has been installed.
    3-After the full installation complete,you should see the two OS at the boot screen whenever you start the computer.
    4-Choose any OS according to your need.

    You can install both the OS in your system but you need two disc partitions otherwise you may lose your old OS.
    Have your windows 8 in your DVD or in USB.
    Insert DVD or USB and boot system.
    Then go for boot options by selecting f2(may change from system to system)
    then select boot options from the blue window.
    and select USB drive.
    it will start loading windows and asks you some info.
    Provide different disc than your Current OS.
    It will restart few times.
    And windows 8 is installed in your system.

    You can install both Os in your system.
    In order to do tht you need to have two disc partitions.
    Have your windows 7 in separate disc partition and install your new OS in your other drive.
    If you have one disc drive then use partition to spilit into two drives.
    Then install in your new drive.
    If you install in the same drive then you my lose your old windows but your documents and other things will be saved in old.windows in your new OS.

    If you want to have Windows 7 and Windows 8 Release Preview in your PC together.
    Then, you will have to install Windows 8 Release Preview in any other drive.
    Firstly, you will have to download Windows 8 RP in DVD or in USB Pen Drive.
    However, if you install Win 8 through Pen Drive, your installation would be faster.
    After downloading it, restart your PC and press F8 so that your PC may boot by USB Pen Drive.
    After that install Windows 8 RP by following instructions.
