    Windows 10 and Windows 7 dual booting


    Hi,

    I am currently running Windows 7 and Windows 10 on dual boot on SSD drive that has 2 partitions.

    I need to fix Windows 7 or reinstall windows 7 completely but ideally i want to somehow install windows 7 over windows 7 partition without losing any programs etc. I have made a backup of Windows 7 personal files. Can this be achieved without breaks Windows 10 dual boot?

    Another thing is i have issue over Windows 10 with this weird pixels showing in middle of the screen due to this reason I want to install Windows 10 again after i have installed Windows 7 successfully.

    Is reset pc button enough to have fresh copy of Windows 10 or do you prefer installation via .iso of Windows 10?

    For Windows 7: Is it still running? If so, a Repair Install of windows 7 will do the job.

    For Windows 10: Yes, the Reset PC will be enough.
