    Why Windows Embedded? I would think 8.1 Pro would be a better choice? I'm not even sure Embedded would run on your system, its meant more for POS systems etc.

    You can dual boot Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 Core or 8.1 Pro, it doesn't have to be embedded to setup a dual boot. Visual Studio will run in Windows 7 or 8 or 8.1 also.
