Windows 7 (and/or XP) can be run in either VMware Player or Virtual Box on Windows 8.

A virtual machine as suggested by SpywareDoctor would be your best bet.  Mostly due to the fact that any time you are doing a dual boot you install the operating systems in order of release, so Windows 7 would need to be installed before Windows 8.
