    Dual Boot Win7 & Win10


    I used the ISO (64bit) burnt to DVD, changed boot order to install and installed to a new 250GB HDD, setup was about 15 mins and the dual boot works great, Windows 10 installed fine and Windows 7 has not been affected and runs as normal

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit and VM

    I am going to do what you have done Stephanie. I have installed it 4 times so far. 3 times on Virtual machines. One 32,64 and a 64 bit Enterprise with Windows to Go. The first install I upgraded Windows 7 Ultimate and it went without a hitch on a real, older PC. I have a spare 149gb partition on this machine and with so few issues I am confident this will work as a main OS just fine. I can honestly remember M$ releasing buggy software than this in the past as retail.

    Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64-bit 15063 Multiprocessor Free

    What VM do most of you use, I'd have to install to a VM on this Notebook as I can't make another partition. Plus I'd like to give Macrium a try, is the free version Macrium Reflect ?

    I got Win10 to work just fine in VmWare. There is a free version for non commercial use.

    Thanks Jeff, this would be something I'd be doing over the weekend so just need to gather everything I need beforehand.
