    Many thanks Kari for your help!

    Quick question ... my laptop is using UEFI bios ... do you know if this is going to create any problem if I want to have dual boot Win 10 Home and Win 7 Ultimate?

    Thanks in advance!

    As the OP has Windows 10 Home, meaning it's not possible to use Hyper-V to create the VM and install Windows 7 on VHD, the easiest way would be to simply boot the computer with Windows 7 install media and install 7 on VHD instead of HDD.

    This tutorial on our sister site Seven Forums, although already a bit old, is still valid and shows how to do it: Virtual Hard Drive VHD File - Create and Start with at Boot - Windows 7 Help Forums
