I have a netbook with windows 7 installer. While the netbook(PC) is booting I can press a button and tell the netbook to install fresh new windows 7. Without losing this installer how can I install windows 8?

You would need to create a new partition on your hdd then insert a Windows 8 installation disk and install Windows 8 to that new partition. –  Ramhound Mar 3 '13 at 3:02
    
Do what's been suggested above (I recommend booting from a Linux LiveCD/USB and running GParted for partition tinkering), and be sure not to remove the manufacturer's recovery partition that is responsible for the feature you describe. –  Karan Mar 3 '13 at 3:04
