Hi guys.

Thanks for looking at this thread.

I have a few questions about dual booting windows 7 and windows 8 preinstalled (UEFI) on my Dell laptop.

1. Can I install a non-UEFI version of Windows 7 on my laptop, if so how?
2. Will installing a non-UEFI version of Windows 7 on my laptop break it?
3. Can I use EasyBCD for UEFI?
4. How do I create a UEFI windows 7?

Thank you :)

Really no point in dual booting since they are essentially the same OS like 7 to Vista.

Choose one and stick with it, Windows 7 will be supported till 2017 (mainstream) and 2020 (security).
