I just bought an Asus N56-Series N56VJ-DH71 and the guy at the store told me I could use windows 7 home premium to dual boot with windows 8 because i need this laptop to run a serrato program and it doesnt have yet the support yet windows 8. so I got home edition premium and it keeps freezing at the swirly colored ball loading screen. I don't know what to do So I followed the steps that microsoft tech told me but it freezes at the loading screen with the swirling colored balls. I really need some help!!!

How did you install windows 7 with windows 8 to be a dual boot computer?
