Thanks in Advance . . .
Hello KayEee,

If you purchase an "upgrade" copy of Windows 8, then you will need to upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 8 instead. You cannot keep both Windows 7 and Window 8 installed since that is part of the EULA agreement.
Upgrade Install from Windows 7 or Vista to Windows 8
If you purchase full retail version (system builders) copy of Windows 8, then you could install it separately to dual boot with Windows 7 if you like.
Dual Boot Installation - Windows 8 and Windows 7 or Vista
Hope this helps,
Shawn
