My new HP laptop has a 1 TB drive. If I have to reformat anyway, should I split the drive and will the $14.99 Win 8 offer from Best Buy work on the 2nd partition?

If you plan on dual booting your machine then you can just make one partition for now 1/2 the size of your drive or w/e you want to use for windows 7. Then when you put windows 8 on it you can just choose the unallocated space.
