Want to install Win7 on a Win8 Laptop, have a few questions

Hey there, ive never really installed an OS before (or downgraded) so Im pretty new at this.
Anyways, im going to be buying a new laptop that comes with windows 8 pre installed. Ive tried it before, and havent liked it, so I plan on installing W7. I just have a few questions since this is my first time.
Ive heard you need to boot from disc, but cant you just insert the disk and run it like normal to start the installation? Or will that not work?
If you do need to boot from disc, how would i go about doing this?
Also it has an ssd boot drive and secondary HDD. How do i make sure it installs on the ssd?
And lastly, will i lose all of my drivers? And if i do what are your suggestions for redownloading them all?
Thank you for any help. Like i said ive never installed An OS before so im new at this.
