Thank You Sir,
I guess this leaves me with the quandary of whether to upgrade the home version of 8.1 to 10 home or eventually, when school is done, upgrade the 7 Pro to 10 Pro. I guess it really doesn't matter, as in the long run, when all is said and done, I will only likely need one OS on the machine. I don't plan to use this for anything but training until school is finished and will not have a lot of storage space used up.
It seems that now the best course of action would be to, as suggested:
A) Wipe everything and do a clean install of 7 Pro
B) Partition as required
C) Do a clean install of 8.1 Home and upgrade it to 10 Home, as I have no desire or need for 8.1. I have no installation disk for 10.
D) When school is done, decide if 7 is essential to keep and if not, wipe out the 10 Home and upgrade the 7 Pro to 10 Pro and call it a day!
Does This Sound Like A Good plan?
