I don't think anyone can say with absolute certainty at this time since Windows 8 hasn't even been released as a beta, only as a pre-beta developer preview.

The best way, would be to dual boot Windows 7 & Windows 8 is to follow this tutorial:
Dual Boot Installation - Windows 8 and Windows 7 or Vista - Windows 8 Forums
you can than delete Windows 8 very easily, using this tutorial:
