I've ordered myself a new Acer laptop which will come with Windows 8 64 already installed, however, I also ordered Windows 7 to install as I really don't want to be using Windows 8. My original intention was to format the drive and install Windows 7 instead, but come to think of it, I'd quite like to have both operating systems on the hard drive.
Can I partition the hard drive to allow for the 750GB HDD to be split up into another partition for Windows 8 and if so, how simple should it be? Also, what complications may there be, if any if both Win 7 and Win 8 are installed?
Edit: 17/01/2013 - after a long time of trying to find a solution to dual booting, I have not found a working solution, but I hope others do.
Acer Aspire V3-571G
