    Hello TeKNoM,

    I suppose that it depends on if the Windows 7 ISO is a legal copy, and if you have a legal product key number for it or not.

    If you do, then why choose. You could dual boot them if you have enough HDD space or more than one HDD.

    What are you trying to do? What's your current config?

    If you want to evidential proof of Windows 8 beta's, wait for some hours to download another iso i.e. RP and give it a try instead of installing Windows 8 DP. However you could try dual boot as per Brink said.

    Is the Windows 7 ISO a legal copy that you are thinking to download, and do you have a legally purchased product key number for it?

    That would have to be your decision for what you want. You could use one or the other, or both in a dual boot.

    Personally, I would install Windows 7 first as your main OS, then you could dual boot with Windows 8 RP when it's released in the rumored next day or two.
