    Windows 7 and Windows 10


    I have SSD - win 7 installed. Yesterday i bought another SSD and installed win 10. Both of them work, but there is a problem:

    - windows 7 boot - it takes me through 2 bios loading screens before it reaches.the loading screen.
    - one it reaches the welcome phase it takes 1-2 minutes to load.

    Windows 10 loads in 5 seconds without going twice in the bios loading screen.

    Could you please help with this ?

    Thank you very much

    The Windows 10 drive is probably set to be the first boot drive, and the Windows 7 drive is lower in the boot order. Since the Bios has to look at the 10 drive before moving on, you probably aren't going to get the Windows 7 drive to boot as fast as the 10 drive.
    Boot into Setup (Bios) go to the Boot tab, Move whichever drive is your primary drive/OS you want to be the first boot device. Then move the next SSD to be the Second Boot drive. Also use EasyBCD to be able to easily dual boot the system.

    When booting to the standard Windows 10 graphical boot screen, it is already booted part way to Windows 10, which is probably using fast start - a hybrid sleep and hibernation start up. Selecting Windows 7 from the graphical menu means that the boot has to go back to the BIOS Boot to get into windows 7 which does not have the faster start technology.

    The legacy style of text boot menu will continue to windows 7 or 10 selected without returning to the BIOS boot, and is faster than the graphical menu to get to Windows 7, or any other multibooting option than the default Windows 10 option.

    The commandline BCDEDIT command in Windows 10 can be used to select the boot menu style with either of the 2 following commands:

    bcdedit /set bootmenupolicy legacy for the text menu


    bcdedit /set bootmenupolicy standard for the graphical menu
