Here's how I do dual boot installs.

You'll need to partition your hard drive so that you have two drive letters. Be sure to give each partition enough space. Then install Windows 7 onto the C: drive first. After that boot from the Windows 8 DVD, select custom install, and install Windows 8 in the 2nd partition. Note that you will likely need to get drivers and helper apps from the computer's manufacturer to make all your devices work properly.

Good luck.

Re: partition hard drive

That's true. But if you have 2 hard drives, you can also install Windows 7 on one and Windows 8 on the other, if there's a function key in the BIOS that lets you choose which disk to boot from (F11 on my MSI motherboards).

Re: plugins

Plugins don't work in Windows. They work in a browser. There's no relation in general between both (although recent version of IE don't work on Windows XP).

Even more important: install Windows 10 so you can test how your website behaves in Microsofts new browser Edge.
