I have just bought Dell Inspiron 15R SE 7520 (the one comes with 1 TB HDD and 32 GB mSATA).
I want to dual boot Windows 8 RP with Windows 7.
Here is my disk partition setup:
However, when I tried to install, after the 1st reboot, I faced the BSOD with the error message: Inaccessible Boot Device.
I changed the BIOS settings of SATA from Intel Smart Response Technology to IDE and the installation went smooth after that. But I noticed that the HDD was very noisy all the time.
And after Windows 8 installation was finished, when I tried to change the BIOS SATA settings back to Intel Smart Response Technology, I could not boot into Windows 8 anymore.
I may be wrong, so if other members want to join in, I know there is a limit of partitions you can have on your computer. Can't remember if it's 4 or 5.
