    When you are booted into Windows 10, what drive letter does the Windows 7 partition have?

    Yes they will do
    so to repeat in case you need it
    you boot into 10
    you check the drive letter allocated to 10 -on my example C
    you open File explorer - this computer and check the drive letter allocated to 7
    you the use the cmds listed
    changing the drive letters as necessary
    So if in 10 - the drive letter for 10 is C and the drive letter for 7 is E then the cmds are as shown
    thanks so if i'm in Window 10, my Win 7 drive is E, my commands would look like this correct?:

    bcdedit /export e:\oldstore
    bcdedit /createstore e:\emptystore
    bcdedit /import e:\emptystore /clean
    bcdboot e:\windows


    Would I need to repeat the similar step when i'm logged into my Win 7 HDD?

    The command you want is:

    Code:
    bcdboot E:\Windows /d /addlast

    thanks so if i'm in Window 10, my Win 7 drive is E, my commands would look like this correct?:

    bcdedit /export e:\oldstore
    bcdedit /createstore e:\emptystore
    bcdedit /import e:\emptystore /clean
    bcdboot e:\windows
    No that is NOT correct
    Please read again my post detailing the cmds as here

    You boot into 10
    you then open a cmd prompt with admin rights
    you then issue these cmds

    bcdedit /export c:\oldstore
    bcdedit /createstore c:\emptystore
    bcdedit /import c:\emptystore /clean
    bcdboot c:\windows

    Those are the cmds if when in 10 the drive with 10 installed is lettered C
    as you have a dual boot the extra cmd if as you say when in 10 - 7 is lettered E
    is
    bcdboot e:\Windows
    or as I said whatever letter is 7 whilst booted into 10

    Everything seems to be working as intended now!

    When I did the bcdedit and bcdboot commands on my Windows 10 (bcdboot E:\Windows /d /addlast didn't seem to register in cmd), I wasn't able to boot to Win 10 anymore as it keeps booting into Win 7, even when I chose to boot from Win 10 drive.

    I boot into Win 7 to do the similar
    bcdedit and bcdboot command to fix my Win 10. Win 10 started giving me bcd errors, was able to fix this by doing bootrec /rebuildbcd and bootrec /fixmbr.

    fingers cross, hope everything is ok as I keep monitor the next week or so.

    bcdboot E:\Windows /d /addlast didn't seem to register in cmd)
    I did not suggest that. It was another post
    My cmd was
    bcdboot e:\Windows
    which I can assure you, adds that to the newly configured boot configuration data and I am sure would have worked perfectly.

    I used it only two days ago on a dual boot I was repairing for someone.
    I do not know how technically interested you are but here is the tech doc
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...ons-techref-di

    the add last will not work for a dual boot on MBR as it changes the position of the entry so that you end up, only being able to boot into the add last - entry

    If you have an external drive of the right capacity to take both images I would make a Macrium image of each drive - on the external drive.
    If you do that - it will serve you well
    NOT a clone - as that formats the drive and only then has the clone
    An image of each of the disks on the computer
    If you need help I will guide you.

    Pleased to have assisted you.

    "bcdboot X:\Windows /d /addlast" is the standard command used to establish dual booting. Below is a dual drive system with Windows 10 installed on disk 0 and Windows 7 installed on disk 1. Both disks will boot independently into their respective OS and it is currently booted into Windows 10:

    The single bcdboot E:\Windows /d /addlast command has the following result:

    This is the result:

    Cloned SSD will not boot, shows winload.exe error 0xc000000e-capture2.jpg

    And upon rebooting:

    Cloned SSD will not boot, shows winload.exe error 0xc000000e-capture3.jpg

    This is a computer system booting normally in legacy BIOS mode. It works exactly the same way on UEFI systems.

    As a side note, in the hundreds of times I have used this command to set up multiple booting, the /addlast switch has never seemed to have any affect. The newly added OS still gets added to the top of the new boot menu list.

    Well all I can say is - I have never used it
    However as you clearly have please accept my apologies - if necessary

    I use the system I posted and have never had a problem
    This computer is dual boot 10 and 7 on MBR
    My Windows boot manager shows the same as yours and as I said I have never issued the
    /d
    or the
    /add last

    I follow the procedure here
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...a-dual-boot-pc

    which as shown once you have established the clean store for the BCD and added the 10 on C you then simply use the cmd shown in the link

    Add boot options for a Windows operating system.

    Bcdboot D:\Windows
    Reboot the PC. Now, the boot menu will show both menu options.
    However as I said - I am not familiar with the need to use the d - preserve and the add last - position cmds

    No apologies needed, I just wanted to show how the process works on a healthy computer. @imeem's computer obviously had some issues.
