I want to try Windows 8 on my system but don't want to lose anything that is already installed so want some dual-boot system. I have a SSD installed having 2 partitions: C:\ and D:\.

What I am looking here is to install Windows 8 somewhere on a new partition: E:\. and from boot screen I can switch what window I want to boot into.

After playing trying new Windows 8, I want to uninstall without disturbing the windows 7 that is already installed on my system.
