Windows 8 release preview dual boot with Windows 7

Oh yes..! Finally I have installed Windows 8 release preview with dual boot on my laptop! I have faced several issues while installing Windows 8 on separate partition, but the following issue gave me a very bad experience!

“Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The Partition contains one or more dynamic volumes that are not supported for installation”

I have tried my best to keep  my previous Windows 7, but I could not convert dynamic volumes to Basic volumes without deleting them. So I have formatted and installed both operating systems from the scratch! 😦 If you face any problem like this just try this and this! 🙂

Okay, here are some nice screen shots from Windows 8 release preview!
