Hi, I am completely new to this and kinda clueless, I'm afraid to go ahead with the install that I might wipe out windows 8 as I don't have a physical copy, also I dont have a USB or a blank cd to boot from.

Just looking for some general advice / steps to take to install it and of course is it possible to wipe Windows 8 if I screw it up.

Thanks in advance for your replys.
