    And in my excitement I failed about until I get a blue screen. I had the remnants of an install start up but wanting to be safer I cancelled it and went to boot 7 which now goes bsod due to ntfs. Fun. I'll get past this I hope

    go back to IDE mode to boot into windows 7, then follow the steps in link in post 12

    You can also google IDE to AHCI Windows 7. I think once you get everything running in AHCI mode you will be OK

    That is where I bsod. For record, I tried AHCI normal boot once, it hung, tried safe mode, gets stuck at atipcie64, change bios, bsod. Going to unplug the ssd and see if I can recover win 7

    Edit : just realized the cancelled 10 install now says setup rollback... Maybe that needs to run?

    Edit2 rollback says it couldn't recover previous windows. Seems I've screwed the pooch hard on this one. Safemode just bsod.

    Atm trying startup recovery, which in my experience is a joke but last resort time.

    Ahhh.... but you still have the image you made of Windows 7 using Macrium reflect, right? :-)

    Disconnect the Windows 10 SSD. Set bios back to IDE mode. Boot Macrium Reflect USB. Restore the image to the Windows 7 hard drive. Reboot.

    Or, if the Macrium Reflect USB won't boot with Bios in IDE mode then try booting it in AHCI mode. After you do the restore, then switch the Bios back to IDE mode and see if you get back into Windows 7. Then do the safe mode method of changing the bios mode to AHCI.

    If you get Windows 7 to boot in AHCI mode, what I would do then is install the SSD, but do not boot from it - boot from the Windows 7 HDD. Use Macrium Reflect Free to clone the Windows 7 HDD to the SSD. Then boot into Windows 7 on the SSD, with the old HDD disconnected, and upgrade that to Windows 10. Then if that all goes well, reconnect the Windows 7 HDD.
