    Partitoning questions for install Windows 10


    I have plenty of space. I can temporally delete the fat 32 partition for the windows 10 install. Fat32 was made for backwards compatibility with old software.

    I am not really interested in using the windows 7 or 10 dual boot menu.

    I am basically going to install 10 on a separate partitions.

    My motherboad does have secure boot but disabled because of windows 7. I want to keep it disabled.

    I have mini partition wizard so I can shrink even smaller if needed. I always had problem with windows 7 because of the system partition. Once I got rid of the system partition, I had no major issues.

    What am I getting confused on is how to make sure windows 10 doesn't create a system partition.
    Windows 7 full install (No oem partition)
    Fat 32 45gb partition

    If space is unallocated will windows 10 create a system partition if there are two partition available?
    Do I need to make a 2 more primary partitions to prevent windows 10 from making a system partition and choose one as active?

    I already know how to make the windows 10 install partition active before starting the install with the usb drive. This usually prevents each os from overwriting each others mbr.

    Drive would need to be all unallocated, for Windows 10 to make the System Recovery partition.

    I would use a VM.
