I recently purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad Y580. Here are the specs:

5400 rpm is kind of slow and I am worried about heat build-up. I've did some research and some people suggest installing a mSata and just boot OS on it. The laptop comes preload with Win8, so how exactly do I move the OS and other programs from the HDD to the mSata? I have a copy of Win7, can't I just install that onto the mSata and dual boot both OS? I don't really know what I am doing so if anyone can help me that'll be great. Or feel free to suggest other methods.
*Note the Y580 has a mSata slot.
