    I have already installed Windows 7 in my pc and I wish to format my drive and install Windows 8 as well but I am a bit concerned about formatting and dividing my drive for Windows because I don't want to loose any file or for my Windows 7 to become unstable or my hard disk to have some problem like performance degradation.

    Is there any solution? Can someone make a guide for it?

    Thanks

    Did you know you can install windows 8 into a .vhd (virtual hard disk) and might not need to partition anything.
