    Yes, you can install windows 8 in MAC also.

    Either you can keep MAC OS in C drive and overwrite it with Windows 8.

    Else make another new partition for Windows 8 , 15 GB would be sufficient.

    Now insert the Windows 8 CD and restart PC and now boot with windows CD to install another OS.
