    win 8.1 pro

    Fixed Win 10 but have slight problem booting (Need help please)

    I thank everyone for the tutorials that helped me install Win 10 and get it working. My problem is I have Win 8.1 Pro on a Samsung EVO SSD T-1. I went out and bought a Samsung 225 gig SSD HDD to install Win 10. I downloaded the Win 7 ISO and it worked perfectly. When I first tried to install Win 10 on the boot up with the USB flash media drive I went into setup on Win 10 and when I selected the new hard drive for the installation it gave me a message that it could not install on that drive. The other partition on the drive said system info. I hit delete and it installed. I don't know if I should have re formatted.

    Long story short. I go to bios setup on my motherboard Asus Z-97 and select Samsung EVO and it goes directly into Win 8.1 Pro. If I reboot and select in the bios Windows media drive it boots into Win 10.

    My question is I thought (based on all the screen shots I see here in the forum) that when I boot up my computer it should take me to a blue screen with 2 selection boxes Win 8.1 pro or Win 10 and I should be able to select.

    Did I do something wrong and could someone assist me in fixing the problem. I would rather see the 2 boxes where I can select one of them.

    My last question is when I bring up my Win 10 the fonts on the menus and etc. are so small I cannot hardly read them. I am using a LG 21.9 3440 x 1440 ultra wide monitor and have my text at largest and my screen zoomed to 150. Can someone help me please.

    Thank you

    I like using: Download EasyBCD - MajorGeeks at the first BOOT disk which is SSD to set dual boot menu.

    Win 10 Pro x64

    Normally, you'll only get dual boot options automatically if you installed both OSes on the same hard drive. Follow Countmike's advise above.
    But if I were you, I will leave it like that. You don't want the 2 to see each other because Win10 usually messes up the other OS after Windows updates.
