Have you created a separate partition on your hard drive?

You need to install W7 on a separate partition to W8.

After you have done that if you wish you can delete W8 and recover the no longer used partition with W7.

All other partitions are reserved or too small. Would I have to delete windows 8 from c:/ partition to install 7? How do I do this?
