    Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64-bit/Windows 7 dual boot

    Windows 10 will not boot

    Having nearly got my duel boot (on two drives) stable, I had to play, W10 was on disk 1 and W7 on disk 0, to make this neat I thought I would swap them over, so booting with W7 on D1 only I booted and switched off, connected W10 to D0 and ensured the BIOs was correctly set, but it would only boot to W7. The BIOS was set to boot from D0 UEFI, but it would boot to W7, with D1 disconnected it would not find W10.
    Switched it all back but no better, so I booted up Reflect, set my changes but still no joy.
    I managed to get into W10 via the BIOS boot menu, but it will not boot there at all:
    Conclusion I played and broke it.
    I have an Imagen of my W7, and I will then reinstall W10
    If it ain't broke don't fix it!!

    I would imagine the boot file still set to Win 10 being on location 1 and W7 set to location 0.

    Not sure if a windows repair will sort it out as will see where the target drive is and redo the boot config file.

    Id wait for other more experienced users to confirm this though mate.

    Did you install each OS while the other drive was unplugged ?
