Get a new laptop Win7 for dual boot with Win8
So I bought a new laptop with Win7 installed in it and decided to take advantage of the offer low cost upgrade Win8 - just in case. I am unwilling to well to commit myself to Win8 yet but I'd like to tinker with it anyway, and so I tried to create a dual boot on another partition that has failed because of the disk being style GPT.
Windows 8 Pro license is an upgrade, so you are not able to even dual boot with it in any case. You can not install Windows 8 Pro upgrade on a blank partition.
I am currently running OS Mountain Lion on my iMac and subscribe to the CC photography package. I am trying to build an OS Mavericks drive on the iMac even and fresh - install my current apps on this drive before moving to the new operating system. CC of Photoshop installed without problem, but the software CC think LR is already installed and won't let me install it on the new drive. I want to get the new OS fully configured and tested drive before moving on to it permanently. Is it possible to install LR without uninstalling first on the other drive? (I know I could set him up as a 30 day trial, but I would prefer to have a fully functional version which should not be replaced after 30 days)
Mosleyh can you start player and remove your original drive to complete the installation process?
The b017c is capable of running WIN7 pro in anyway shape?
I really need to do a system dual boot with WIN7 If Yes. WIN10 is not be nice to some specific software Attorney that I need to have to work for a client. Win7 is the latest OS, this software is compatible with before an upgrade of expensive software can't be compatible with Win8 or higher (we're talking $1000-2000 range).
I tried to install WIN7 on this computer after the partitioning of the disk space, and put out several settings in the bios (I had error btw), but WIN7 keeps hanging in the first screen after loading the drivers (language selection screen). Something happens where ports USB closing killing all connections to the mouse and keyboard. I have tried many changes in the bios settings and a retry of the WIN7 Installer (from an installation disc) but no dice.
Is there a certain combination of settings that must be disabled in the bios to get the win7 Installer right or I'm screwed?
Thanks for any help
What an adventure!
As you discovered, you must completely format the drive as one or the other (GPT or MBR). You cannot format a GPT partition and the other in the MBR.
I wonder if you had back and disabled the legacy mode, if W7 would let you install on the GPT - or partition if the disabling legacy mode would also have permitted secure boot.
In any case, it's water under the bridge.

In December of 2012, I bought a new Dell XPS12 running 64-bit window 8. Later, I bought "Win8 Media Center Pro Pack" for Windows Media Center. Later, I upgraded to Windows 10 pro and lost Media Center. Given that I had a legitimate copy of Windows 8 Pro with Media Center, I would like to re - install in a separate partition. I was able to clean install Win8.1 in this partition using a flash drive and the MediaCreationTool. He did not like my product key OEM Win8, and he didn't like my WMC Pro Pack upgrade key, so I installed using a KMS key that is freely available online.
Clearly, I go about it the wrong way. I'm happy to start again and install Win8, then upgrade with my pro WMC pack key, but I do not know the mystical incantations necessary to get there. Since I had legitimately a Pro Win8.1 with instance of Media Center, and I my self Win10 product key after upgrade, I can't imagine that such a dual-boot configuration would be illegal. Can someone please help?
Eventually your 8.1 installation using KMS will be disabled.
1. cannot use keys hacked to enable long term of Windows, as you will be taken; It's a matter of time.
2. the key/license Windows product to describe the operating system, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, etc. is absorbed by upgrading Windows 10 during the installation process and becomes an integral part of the active Windows 10 final installation.
The license qualifying operating system, either Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, etc. cannot be used anywhere else, or in a dual boot with Windows 10.
So I tried to get a new graphics card for my HP Envy 700-214, but I'm not aware if this map is compatible or if it would have a negative impact on my system.

Yesterday, I try to make a dual boot with Ubuntu.
I do not have a start to boot from USB, or iso CD (same choices as for the Toshiba application), and I did one on the bios:
-Disable secure boot
-Change UEFI CSM support
On reboot, I get not Toshiba logo, but a black screen with:
«This product is covered by one or more of the following patents:...» (list of patents...)
PXE - E61: Media test faliure check cable
PXE - MOF: Exit PXE ROM
"No boot device - insert boot and press a key.
I can't open the Bios again at F2.
Which I recover the system?
The unit has been pre-installed with Win 8 64 bit right?
Change BIOS setting of UEFI to CSM and disabling secure boot prevent Notepad to start 8 to win!
That's why the device cannot find the boot device and passes to the last option: LAN.
But given that the laptop can not find bootable system via LAN, the error PXE - E61: Media test faliure check cable appears.
If you want to use a dual boot, you will need to boot into Win 8
Win 8 you must create a partition for installing Linux. This can be down in Win 8 disk management. It must reduce a last partition and have to create new free space available.
Now to start installing Linux you need support... you can burn the iso on DVD or a USB bootable Linux. There are a lot of details on the internet how to create these media.
Once you have created the bootable USB key, restart your PC with USB connected.
Press F12 for the boot menu. Now you should see the key USB (if it is bootable!) choose USB and you should be able to install Linux (Ubuntu is great!)
