    Default No "Install on another partition option" xp

    Hi. I'm trying to install windows 8 on my computer which has Xp on it, on a separate partition. However, the installer only gives me the install now and install later options, with no way to get it on the partition I recently created for it. Is the new partition option only available on computers that already have 7, or does anyone else have any ideas.

    My disk config is in the picture.

    Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

    If you directly run ISO under your current Windows system, there seems no option to install Windows 8 CP on another partition. But if you burn ISO file into DVD, and choose complete installation, not upgrade, then you will soon have an option to choose which partition that you wanna install Windows 8 CP in.

    Yes, burn the iso to DVD then choose Custom Install (I believe the wording is Custom Install, not Complete Install, I could be wrong) You will then be given the option.
