    Thanks for weighing in.



    I have 2019 tax software that need win 10.

    I did see Dual Mode set ups. Will that work for me for win 7 & win 10 as dual mode to work with this software?

    What are the options to have win 10 env along with win 7 on my HP DV6?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello @MDRI,

    It would depend if your HP DV6 model has Windows 10 drivers available for it or not.

    If not, then I wouldn't recommend to install or upgrade to Windows 10 since it may not run or run properly without these drivers.

    Your specs list a Windows 10 laptop. Could you use this software on it instead?

    Can't answer any questions in your private messages.

    But! I have no answer for what you want to do with dual booting Win 7 and Win 10. It's not my 'expertise'.

    Then what is the workaround? Shall I use an external USB to boot for win 10?

    How to I check whether my HP DV6 model has Windows 10 drivers available for it or not?

    Do you know the full model number of the HP DV6 laptop? There should be a sticker or imprint on the bottom of the laptop or under the battery with the model number etc... on it.

    If so, post it here, and I can look it up on HP's support page website to see which Windows it has drivers available.

    I answered his PM with a link to a Brink tutorial on dual booting Windows 10 and Win 7 or 8.

    Sounds MDRI is doing to much PMing. Keep stuff in the threads. Don't look for private support. It's against forum policy and annoys people who do want to help.

    I can't find any Windows 10 drivers available for this laptop model at HP.

    Thanks. Do you mean this laptop will not work for win 10 ?

    What are the alternate ?
    @Ztruker, @thomaseg1 @Jacee @Bree

    You weighed in here with Win 10 install experience on HP Pavilion DV6.

    How did you get win 10 drivers for your install ?

    Thanks for guidance
