    I would create a partition to install Windows 7 on, without a key you won`t be able to activate it, so you DO NOT won`t to wipe out Windows 8. Or..... you could just install 7 in a VM.

    Download the windows 7 iso file from here and burn to dvd or flash stick to install 7.

    This is a great tutorial and good luck
