    Win 7 Pro

    Dual Boot Win 7 pro and Win 10

    I have new computer win 7 pro with all SSD. I plan to Install Win 10 onto a separate SSD (Samsung 500gb) and will just unplug my C Drive SSD with Win 7. The C drive SSD is also 500gb Samsung but only 152gb left on that drive. Any Comments / potential problems I may have.

    I have registered and will get a win 10 download 7/29 I hear but would rather burn a installation CD with that if possible or I could use a Flash Disk. Then Install Win 10 as above from the installation CD.

    Is this actually a Dual Boot if it is two separate SSD's Also, I have dual booted Win with Linux but never with two versions of win. So, another question in Program files and Data in Win 7 I have many application that I use nearly daily. If I install win 10 as above will I.win 10 be able to access apps in win 7 program files. IE FedEx ship manager, Quick Books etc?
