I am trying to dual boot but when I press Install on Linux Mint it says "No other operating systems can be found"
I have Windows 8 installed currently.
Is there any other info i have to provide too?

once running you will see (prob) 4 partitions already on the machine - you cannot have more than 4 primary partitions - mint will try to install a new primary partition...
One of your partitions will be a windows recovery partition.
One of your partitions will be the main windows partition.
Main Windows Partition
If you are happy with the windows setup use a backup program, if not use the recovery program to reinstall a fresh windows setup NB this will be destructive, once complete and setup; use - http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx

Delete the Recovery Partition and shrink the others, using gparted or ubiqity.
Delete the Recovery Partition and shrink the others- if you dont want to use windows delete this partition as well.
Use Gparted to make an extended partition in the free space them inside that make a root (/) partition, /home and lastly a swap partition of about 2Gb
My sig has video tutorials for the install, also look at viewtopic.php?f=42&t=121912
