    I find Virtual OSes slow, and buggy, I need full hardware utilization without overhead
    Never had a problem with them being slow or buggy. They work so well that the concept of multi-booting has been dead to me for years. VirtualBox and VMWare Player are both free and do an amazing job.

    I tried a lot of things, but I dont think it is possible to add Win 7 x86 onto the Win 10 x64 UEFI bootloader, since the win 7 x86 is not uefi compatible.

    In anyway, the only way to access win 7 for me was to select the drive to boot from, at power on. I guess it would be problem if the two OSes were on the same hard drive
