Installing Windows 7 on a Windows 8 Tablet PC (Fujitsu)

Hello. I would like to dual boot to Windows 7 (I purchased the Home Edition) on a new Windows 8 Tablet PC (Fujitsu Lifebook T732). I have watched several videos about dual booting, but almost all the videos refer to some variable not addressed in the video (creating a new partition, the advisability of a second hard drive, etc.). What is the worst that could happen if I attempt to follow these video tutorials, some of them quite good and understandable to more novices than I? Will the tablet PC functions be lost if I install Windows 7 Home Edition?

 

Although I have re-installed Windows on inoperable machines, it has been many years since I was required to do so. I have never created a partition for anything other than a Truecrypt drive.

 

Thank you.
