Dual booting Windows 8 and Windows 7

Posted 16 September 2012 - 02:13 AM

I don't actually need a tutorial on how to dual boot these 2 OS's because I already know how....I just have one question:

So, I heard that in order to dual boot I need to make a new partition with 20GB free space (64bit) for Windows 8 to be installed. I can do that. But, my question is: Will I be able to use files from my other partitions while using Windows 8 . So, what I am saying is will I only be able ot use the partition I have left for Windows 8 or all of them...

I hope you know what I'm talking about.

Thanks in advance,

Koyax

Windows should be able to mount all NTFS and FAT partitions, even those used as the system partition for another version of a windows.

I haven't tested this on Windows 8 though, but if it isn't able to do that it would be one hell of a regression from Windows 7 and XP.
