    Dual Booting Windows 10 and Windows 7


    I have recently installed W 10 as dual boot with W7.W10 is working fine.However while there is no problem from restart from W7 to W10,restarting from W10 to W7 starts diskcheck for all partitions.Sometimes a dark screen (with disk activity visible) could be seen .Rebooting again diskcheck started.

    Request assistance to solve this.

    I have noticed that a while ago, with W8. The way I go around it (as I don't know what the real problem is) is to install W10 on a separate drive with all other drives disconnected. This way in order to switch to the secondary OS I need to use the BIOS - I press F8 (I have an ASUS motherboard) at boot to get to the menu where I can choose the drive to boot from. In that setup the disk check does not appear unless I take ownership of a drive or make any other significant changes.

    Windows 10 (Windows 8 also) has a mode called Fast Startup. This causes the hard drives be put into a state that Windows 7 does not understand, hence the chkdsk.

    See this tutorial to turn Fast Startup off.
