Hi all. I’m new to this forum & am looking for advice on dual booting. I have recently purchased a Lenovo G500 laptop which has Windows 8.1 64 bit preinstalled. I need to run some software that won’t run on a 64 bit system. My question is this; is it possible, with or without EasyBCD, to install & dual boot a copy of Windows 7 Pro 32 bit on top of the preinstalled Windows 8.1 64 bit? I've tried this by disabling both the fast startup and UEFI secure boot in the Windows 8.1 setup. The installation of Windows 7 gets so far, but then I get the message, ‘windows cannot be installed to this disk the selected disk is of the gpt partition style’. Any help or advice regarding this would be very welcome.
