Hello Brian,

Yes, that would work, but you would have to install Windows 8 at boot and not from within Windows 7 to be able to select the other partition to install to.

Clean Install - Windows 8

Hope this helps,

I've had to install it that way as it wouldn't install for me in VirtualBox. Whats the best way to add the entry to the boot menu,at present I can only boot windows 8.

You're most welcome Brian.

@ Danny,

That would be something that you should create a new thread on since it's a separate issue.
