I have a computer running Windows 8. Can I install a new hard drive, install an independent Win 8 OS on that drive and have the option in boot up of choosing which to run? Presently I have a dual bot to Win 7 or Win 8 (I prefer Win 8 bu the way because of its OpenGL capabilities). Thanks

Yes, you can install another instance of Windows 8 on a new hard drive. However, the steps are the same, the only thing that you need to do is, when you are displayed with a box that asks you to ‘select the partition on which you want to install the OS’, select the new hard drive that you have attached, and press Enter key. Follow on-screen instructions thereafter.

Hope this helps.
