As far as the whole question of licenses and dual booting on one license, there are plenty of threads here at the forum that already deal with which we can use to carry on this conversation.
    Well.... there never was an answer to this question:

    If the only issue is that the OP can't access the other installation's files - just needs to add drive letters to the partitions that can't be accessed.

    Windows 10 Pro,

    Yes, you are absolutely correct, if I understand his problem correctly. Hopefully he'll come back in here and fully explain his situation.

    So, when all is said and done: Possible yes, legal no is still the case:

    1. Read the EULA. The EULA definition of device includes partitions. Two partitions = two devices.

    Well....actually, now that I am home this is the exact wording of the EULA:

    Device. In this agreement, “device” means a hardware system (whether physical or virtual) with an internal storage device capable of running the software. A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a device.

    But....the restriction is:

    License. The software is licensed, not sold. Under this agreement, we grant you the right to install and run one instance of the software on your device (the licensed device), for use by one person at a time, so long as you comply with all the terms of this agreement.

    I would argue the key words being "and run". We aren't running two installs on different partitions at the same time, only one can be run at a time.

    The erroneous statement made by cbarhorst was "(the mobo is the device; the license is written to the firmware on it)." The motherboard is neither "the device" nor is "the license written to the firmware on it"

    Sorry for getting back late. Booting from one drive is was like the other was locked..Windows would see the drive but couldn't open any Dir's or run any files. I went back to Windows 7 64bit on one drive and stayed with Windows 10 32bit on the other...so far not problems.

    Yes but you really have no reason to do that because 32 bit applications will run in 64 bit Windows.

    You are two different users on a dual boot system. The username and password may be the samed but the SID is not. Did you try to take ownership of the files and folders you wanted to use? The file system is agnostic to bitness.

    There was no way to take ownership..Windows could not access the drive in any way.

    Procedure for hiding Vista volumes on a multi.doc

    I have attached a Word document. Someone else will have to help with instructions, but you can define the other drive in the registry and set it to visible on boot. I did this procedure in reverse to hide some Vista volumes from XP (Volume shadow copy problem solution when dual booting Vista and XP). This should give you some pretty good hints on where to look. As always, these kinds of changes can render a computer unusable if they aren't done carefully. Having said that the reverse process might work for you. Don't try it if you haven't gotten past Regedit 101. Click on the blue link above to read the doc. Not everything in it matters.
