We need more information as your post reveals about nothing.

Do you want to install Windows 8 and use it instead of your current Windows 7? Or do you want to create a dual boot system, running both operating systems side by side?

Please state clearly what you want to achieve.

Your laptop seems to be OK for Windows 8. I would suggest you join our sister forums, The Eight Forums and post your questions there: Windows 8 Forums
