    Win10 Install For Dual Boot Partition Problem


    I'm trying to do a clean install of Win10 on my Win7 desktop using Unallocated Space on the HDD. I thought I could have up to 4 Primary partitions, but I get this error when I try to select it. Any ideas?

    The System partition is a primary partition as well so you have four primary partitions.

    Rats! So what's the easiest way around this? Can I make one "un-primary?"
