I have a formatted ssd & Easy BCD installed, and have d/l & burned the ISO for 8.1 x64.

Can I just run the setup now, or are there other steps aside from backup/restoration discs

that i need to do first?

 

(just don't wanna bork my system)

there is no logical reason as to why it won't work, install 7 1st, then 8.1 after, then edit the boot up sequence with bcd editor so as it defaults to windows 7.
