    Shrink any partition using DIsk Managment to about 40gigs.
    Restart your pc with the disc in the drive and boot from dvd and follow the prompts.
    Don't log on with a "live" profile.
    Windows 8 will install a new boot loader and win7 will be one of your options, you can also make it the defualt OS from the boot menu.
    Worked for me.
    Use Windows update to update all drivers and basiclly everything in the update is ok.
    So far no free antivirus software works and windows defender is now an antivirus as well.
    I'm going to do a fresh install of win8dev without win7 today.
    I don't like the new start menu.

    Hope you get it right.
