Windows 10: Using Windows 10 and Windows 7 (Dual Bios)
Using Windows 10 and Windows 7 (Dual Bios)
I want to have two OS on my computer, one on my HDD and one on SSD. I already have Windows 7 on HDD and I also have Windows 10 on my SSD but I don't use Win 10 because I somewhere read that for using Windows 10 and Windows 7 in one computer, you must disable fast boot on Win 10 because it may lead to CHKDSK when you want to work with Win 7 and other problems may happen. I want to know is there anything else that I should do to use Windows 10 and Windows 7 in a computer without this CHKDSK or other similar problems? Is just disabling Fast Boot enough?
Thanks and Sorry for my English.
Disabling Fast start is useful to avoid awkwardness but is not, of itself, a critical step.
There are full procedures in

The references to the Technical preview merely reflect the date they were written; they are still valid.
As I said in my question, I have Win 10 installed but I don't use it because I think chkdsk may happen. I read the How to dual boot Windows 10 Technical Preview with Windows 7 by JWStuart But I think it is more about installing the windows and didn't add anything more than Disable fast start to prevent the problem. You said it is not a critical step, so what is the critical step?
And another question which doesn't relate to the previous. If I upgrade my Windows 10 (old build) with an ISO to newer build, can it cause any problem in Windows 7?
I installed the 10 tech preview along side my win 7 ultimate, I reinstalled, the Windows 7 side of the HDD because after however many years the OS had a LOT of clutter, and even though windows update was a nightmare I finally got all the updates...
I'd like to apologise in advance as this is probably completely newb to many of you.
