X1Carbon Dual Boot Win7 and Win8

November 30Hits:3

I've got both sets of OEM Windows disks for the X1 Carbon (which I love), and I'd like to get both operating systems loaded with dual boot functionality.  Can't seem to figure out how to do it since these disks just load automatically and wipe out the drive.  Any ideas?

Load Windows 7 first, then load Windows 8.  You need separate partitions for each or you need to use dual boot from VHD.
