    Windows 8 probably over wrote Windows 7 files, making Windows 8 work, but breaking Windows 7.

    I think u cant repair boot-loader, win 8 is upgrade version then win 7 so when u install its over wrote boot loader If you want to run win 7 and 8 pls take my suggestion don't think about dual boot as it was old fashion. I recommend you to use vmware workstation so u don't have any problem to install any OS and non dos OS like Linux without trouble

    You can keep and use both Windows version, but you need to repartition your C drive and install the different version on each drive in order to prevent overwriting the programs files during the installation.

    this will reduce your ram and cause you . and the drawback is windows 8 overloades the windows 7 and corrupts the data.
