No. you would need to risk destroying everything on it by installing as dual boot, then select whichever system you want to use as the machine starts. And why anyone would want to install Windows 8 with all its' problems and lack of flexibility over Windows 7 install I don't know. Everyone I know who has bought a machine with 8 loaded has then gone and bought 7 to re-install it.

You can dual boot it. It can be complicated but if you want to run both it may be worth it.
