Hoping to run Win 7 on Win 8 partition (or am I in denial)

A week ago a well intentioned doofus dropped my Asus N53S, Win7x64 Pro. She was a champ. Snapped the motherboard, but I safely extracted the harddrive. The venue of its demise bought me a Asus N76VX which has the dreadful Win 8, but 2 TB harddrive with lots of partition space. Is there any way I can "run" my old machine from its harddrive in an emulated Win 7 environment on this new beast? [more inside]

No files for you!

Copying files from one folder to another in XP Home SP2, fairly routine, right? Well, when I try to open the subfolders or access the files, "access is denied." [more inside]

Help me get my Dell to work with certain connection types again.

My wonderful Dell has a quirk: suddenly streaming media, antivirus updates, and MSN messenger are no longer able to connect. My netwrok settings 'seem' okey-dokey, so short of a long ass tech support call to India*, what gives?
*Not that I have any misgivings about that fabulous region.
