Since IE8/9 aren't compatible with Windows 8, the easiest way to get these is to run the virtual machines Microsoft offers for this purpose:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=11575

The above is just to download a VM; If you don't have a platform for running VMs, you may be better off using their dedicated VM site for this:
http://modern.ie/en-us/virtualization-tools#downloads

And finally, if you just need to see how a (publicly available) website looks under those browsers, you can just use http://browsershots.org/ for that.

Windows 8 comes with IE 11 and cannot be backfilled to IE 8 or IE 9. This cannot be done natively in Windows 8 and there is no XP Mode for Windows 8.

You can try Compatibility Mode - I use that for a couple of Router GUI pages I use.

Otherwise you need to set up Virtual Machines to do what you want. XP for IE 8 and Windows 7 or Vista for IE 9.

Yes but you cannot install it Windows 8 - that will not work. Those old versions are not compatible.

for ie 8/9 microsoft is giving option to choose OS and download.
unfortunately, windows 8 is not there for IE9. it's worth to give a try for IE by downloading in windows 7 mode and trying to install in compatible mode...

I haven't tried this but it may help

Note...this feature requires a Professional or Enterprise version of Windows. It’s named Enterprise Mode and intended for businesses with out-of-date websites, not typical home users.

As a web developer in the past I used a collection called Utiliu IE Collection
http://utilu.com/IECollection/
It works under Windows 7 and a number of sites report that it can also be installed under Windows 8 but I cannot confirm that.  It might be worth a test.
Utiliu IE Collection allows you to install a wide range of IE versions under your Windows OS.

I'm running a machine with Windows XP and Utiliu IE Collection to test Internet Explorer 6-7-8 and a Windows 7 machine to test 9 and 10 again with Utiliu IE Collection.

The better option is to use an emulator
http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage

This creates an environment exactly like the browser.
No need to mess around with trying to hack your pc to get it to install an old version.
