Dual Boot Windows 8, 7

Purchased 3 Inspiron 15's from Dell, came with a version of windows 8 that I can't add to a domain.  The organisation does not want to purchase an additional OS, so I have to find a way to make it work.  We have windows 7 licences.  I am trying to make them dual boot.  Here's what I have done so far.

1. Created a partition where i want to install win 7

2. Disabled UEFI 

3. Rebooted with win 7 disk, started the installation process got stuck at selecting partition to install OS.  Error message: windows cannot be installed to this disk the selected disk is of the gpt partition style.

Please help, cause i'm stuck.
