    Dual installation with Windows 7 and 8

    Hi there...
    Recently i was caught in a situation where a Laptop with base installation of
    windows 8 with GPT type Disk was needed to be configured with Windows 7 too as a dual boot operating system.
    I tried my best but failed. I search for the solution but in vain.
    I want to ask is there any possibility to install windows 7 on a preinstalled windows 8 laptop as a dual boot option??
