As per http://www.howtogeek.com/74335.....windows-8/ I tried dual boot Win8 on Win 7 Home Premium. But I was getting error " You cannot create a new volume in this unallocated space because the disk already contains the maximum number of partitions". So, then changed Disk 0 to Dynamic Disk as per http://answers.microsoft.com/e.....2e4dddf8ce . Then tried installing Windows 8 in the new partition but failed. Please help.

Edit by mod. TinyUrl is not allowed here.

Arnavanuj hi. An OS must be installed to a Primary partition. Windows allows a maximum of 4 Primary partitions per physical disk. Please can you post a screenshot of your Disk Management window.
