Hello friends! 

Here eslem presented. 
I have a question before you install W8 on a partition. 
How affects the installation of Windows 7 Windows 8? 
If you get tired of Windows8, you can return to Windows 7 without any problems?

Windows 8 versions circulating to date are trial versions, so there is the option to return to Windows 7 unless you take out a full backup of the boot partition or perform a full reinstallation. 
If you want to try Windows 8 it is best to use a virtual machine, you can use programs like VMware, VirtualBox or similar, check out the following posts for more information:

In addition to reasonably use Windows 8 in a virtual machine, you need a machine with at least 2 GB of RAM, the more the better, preferably a multi-core processor that supports virtualization.

Virtual machine is not an option with the processor I have (@ 1.80GHz Atom D525) and does not support virtualization. 
Can they be installed in parallel with different partitions? 
I think the W7 MBR may recover it with the CD in the recovery console, right?

It can be installed on a separate partition, and go back to normal if you have knowledge in the recovery of Windows 7 boot. 
In any case, the usual recommendation, Windows 8, being a trial version can give unexpected problems so take a backup of your important data.

Thanks: biggrin: 
It is good news. 
Set it up, although I know it's beta (CP), as it is very stable and often give less BSOD's that W7 (Although I have not had any, only with XP). 
The only important fact is that I have to delay W8 ISO 9hrs to download it ..
