    It wasn't actually "hibernation" (per se) that caused the problem with Win8 and Win10 not being able to share the same "data" drive.

    After some testing, I learned that it was "FastStartup" that was the culprit. I had forgotten that Win8 and Win10 enable it by default.

    So, I was making changes to the drive in Win8, clicking Restart -- not realizing that this would "hibernate" the data drive.

    When I started Win10, the change I had made in Win8 weren't visible. So, I made some change in Win10, clicked Restart, and went into Win8 -- where the changes I made in Win10 weren't visible.

    So basically, because I was using Restart and hadn't disabled FastStartup, hibernation was taking place without me knowing about it.

    To fix this, I had to made two changes:
    1) Disable FastStartup in both Win8 and Win10
    2) Choose ShutDown, not Restart, when switching between the OSs.

    Since I've done this, I've had no problems with the "shared" drive.

    I'll be ordering a new SSD shortly for a dual boot with W10, but I'll be waiting for the full release to set it up as I can't be bothered to keep disconnecting drives to do the updating. Getting to that side of my case is a real pain.

    That is good info Mark
    In my last go around I did install 9926 twice and a third doing it from 9879 to 9926,
    So I suppose the last I might of forgotten to disable fast start I'm not sure anymore :/

    Either way I do have a cheap hdd to do another test on for the next build to see what happens with the system reserve partition if it's created or not which 9926 refused to do which to this day I'm still wondering why 9926 will not create the 350mb reserved :/
    @Boozad I bought a dual ssd hot swap case just for easy swapping of ssd's to ensure total disconnect between os's for dual booting
    So far it's proved to be a good device to have around :)
    7-8.1-10-Linux all on separate ssd's or hdd's :)

    What SSD hot swap case did you get? I would be interested in doing that also as unplugging my hard drives would be a pain also.

    Nice idea Mike, I'll have to look into those. I suppose then I could install all three OS (7, 8.1, 10) on three separate SSDs in one sitting meaning I'll only have to disconnect my HDDs once. What's the connectivity for the case to the PC?

    Yup. I have 2 ssd and 1 hdd removable trays on my pc. If I need more tray for ssd, I also use the ssd to hdd adapter.

    I've just ordered a Samsung 850 Evo 128GB SSD ready for W10. I suppose it will be a while until I install it but it will be worth the wait, I have a 2TB WD Caviar Black as a secondary drive to dedicate to the W10 install and it will be nice having two SSDs in my system.
