    That's more of a Mac question you'll probably get better results on a Mac forum.

    There are ways, using 3rd party apps, but as Joe says that question is best asked on a Mac Forum.

    Yes, you can. However, it is more difficult to run Windows 8 on MacBook.

    PS: I dont think this question can be only asked on Mac forum.

    The reason it's best asked on a Mac forum is that is where you will find many more people that have done this. Many Apple people also use Windows on their Macs. However most Windows people do not put Apple on their PC's.

    I installed Win 8 as second OS on my MacBook 13". Dual-boot is done with Refit; boot sector, etc. was not harmed as with XP install. For most drivers I used Bootcamp 2.0 pack and downloaded Win 7 vesion of Intel GMA video drivers.
    Only thing I miss is native brightness control in W8 - controls are disabled and you have to change it with keyboard keys.

    You need to gain a copy of "Parallels Desktop" for MacBook. Beats "Boot Camp" for Windows Driver installation. You can easily swap to keep your Mac OSX as the main source with Windows "Parallel" to it in use at the same time.
