Need windows 7 & 8 on one system

  1. I just got a new computer with windows 8 and upgraded to 8.1. Now a few programs won't work.
    Is there a way to install windows 7 & 8 on the same computer so I can keep my older programs, and how would I do this?

    Thanks

    In order to do this, you will need to do something called "dual-booting". In order to do this, follow these directions.
