HP will not provide any software warranty support if you change the installed OS.
If you install W8, you will probably not be able to use the recovery partition to restore windows 7, so create a set of recovery disks using the Recovery Manager program, if you intend to install W8 anyway.

I would suggest creating a separate partition or use a VM to install Windows Consumer Preview. Nothing against Windows 8, but I wouldn't recommend replacing a stable OS for a beta
