Sure, installing home windows eight on the second partition will permit you to twin boot. Opposite to different advice, you *can* create a new partition in home windows via shrinking your present partition. Go to Administrative tools > computer administration > Storage > Disk management, then decide on the partition you want to cut down, proper-click and select curb quantity. Within the "Enter the quantity of area to cut down in MB" discipline, i might endorse at least "20000" (20GB) for a home windows 8 install (although if you have quite a few free house, go as large as you need). This approach will create unallocated house and if your plan is simply to put in home windows 8 there, you're completed for now. Just go ahead and boot to your windows 8 media, pick "customized: install home windows most effective (evolved)" and put home windows eight into the unallocated house (the program is sensible enough to structure first then do the install).
