Sure, make 2 primary partitions (you already have Windows HP installed on one) and install Enterprise on the other.

Why do you want Enterprise ?

And a better question, why do you want 2 installs of 7 on the same machine.

Post us a shot of disk management, fully expanded, so we can advise.

It uses a different activation method but I've seen nothing to indicate it won't cooperate in a normal Dual Boot Installation - Windows 8 and Windows 7 or Vista - Windows 8 Forums.

Let us know how it goes.
