Windows 7: I messed my BIOS up, need help

The best way to install 8 would be to unplug every hard drive connected to the motherboard.

Then, Connect ONLY the hard drive you want to install 8 on.

Install 8.

Re connect all the hard drives.

Then enter the BIOS and choose which hard drive, (Operating System) you want to boot to.

Either Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Windows 8 is horrible and you really shouldn`t waste your time and money, you`ll only get a headache.
