Install Linux Mint 14 with Windows 8

I just installed Windows 8 on a friends computer and he would like to install LM 14 with it. Is there any problems I will be getting into with this kind of install?

I have Linux Mint 14 and Windows 8 installed on two seperate hard drives in my system. In the BIOS I selected the drive with Mint on it to be the primary boot hard drive. Upon boot Linuxe Mint automatically recognized Windows 8 on the secondary drive and now lists it in the boot menu when I start up. Now I don't have to go into the BIOS and select which operating system I want to be primary. I just choose my operating system when presented with the menu and if I neglect to make a choice it boots into Mint automatically after 10 seconds.
