    Hi All,
    Sir(s),
    I am planning to make a dual boot with win 7 & win 8 while windows 8 is preinstalled & activated by hp. The laptop has UEFI+GPT scheme. The laptop still has hp recovery partition & i surely doesn't want to use/go for Biosmod or GPT to MBR conversion.
    So, i am looking for foolproof, working & Stable means/solution to activate win 7 on this laptop without touching the original configuration (as much as possible) ! Please help me with same & suggest win 7 version, etc. accordingly. Anything else ?
    My laptop : HP Pavilion g6-2231tx Notebook PC.

    Thanks & Regards,
    LittlePro

    Install Pro/Enterprise, activate it with MTK just like you do for Win8 and Win10.

    I use EASYBCD, however, try shrink enough partition and use empty partition and install OS there, Beware of this..
