Yes, you can. 1. Format your hard with GPT using GParted. 2. Install Win8 using UEFI mode. 3. Install Fedora 18 in UEFI mode. 4. In /etc/grub.d/40_custom include menuentry and recompile configuration file. (Note: In my case any entry for loading windows failed. But I found a way. I just put to menuentry "exit" command. When you quit from grub2 loader it automatically load windows 8)
