Are there any special steps i need to follow rather than just installing Win8 to another drive?

Also, i guess that Win7 drivers will work on Win8, right?

I had no problems dual booting 7&8 on a three year old Dell laptop. Drivers that were needed picked up by win update after a couple of boot ups, Course the one you absolutely want and need to work right away is the nic driver, :ninja:

Go for it. I had no probs here too !

Most Win7 drivers must work, but 'cause of the new kernel in 7955 ATi Catalyst from v10.3 to v11.4 doesnt work (11.5 works fine)
