Question Dual Booting - SSD's & HDD's

Hey People,

I have dual booted even tri-booted on a HDD with no problems at all, many of times.

Now whats doing me in, is i now have a SSD, and apparently you cannot partition a SSD (or at least its not good for the life of the SSD).

I have windows 7 pro on my SSD (legit and activated), but i want to try out windows 8 before i actually buy it. I have 3 screens and need to know.

I installed the windows 8 developer preview on a spare HDD i have, however it only boots to that HDD(win8), and when i remove it, it then boots to my SSD(win7). (and as windows boots it keeps asking me to do a disc check).

It doesn't give me a choice of which to boot.

Any Advice Appreciated thanks.
