    Apparently the AMD AHCI driver for Windows 7 will work. The driver is on the Asus driver download page for your laptop, after choosing either Windows 7 32bit or 64bit (just choose whichever variant of Windows 8 you're installing), and expand the "Others" category.

    Right click Computer, click Manage and find Disk Management on the left side pane, click Disk management and get a snip and post.

    You can create a partition by shrinking "C" to a desired size and install in that partition. In that disk management, right click C and shrink.
