no its called an upgrade for a reason. your data will not be erased, new os will be installed on top of your existing stuff

Download virtual software to run windows 8. I use Oracle VM VirtualBox (google search), allows you to run your native Win7 but virtualize Windows 8

However, and upgrade edition is designed to replace the current OS, not install right along side it.
