Hi all,
now i'm two OS installed in my SSD 120GB. OS X 10.8.3 and Windows 7. All run perfectly thanks Chameleon and All guys of InsanelyMac :P
Now i would like to replace Win 7 with Win 8. First of all because it's more fast and even because takes up less memory.
So how can i install it? Can i do as a normal installation or it compromised my chameleon and so my os x partition?

Thanks.

Windows will overwrite any old boot loader settings. I would recommend you to create a Chameleon thumb drive with your current settings and to use it after the Windows installation to be able to boot into Mac.
Afterwards you can run the Chameleon installer again.
