    Two Windows on Two different mode (Bios & UEFI) How to dual boot?

    I have a 250GB GPT SSD and installed Windows 10-64bit in UEFI mode.


    I have 1TB MBR HDD and installed Windows 7-32bit in BIOS mode.

    Currently, I have to go to bios setting every time and change boot priority manually in order to boot from another windows. Is there any way to use Windows Boot Manager (dual boot) instead of selecting manually from mainboard setting?

    Other then reinstalling W7 in UEFI to a GPT drive, or reinstalling 10 in Legacy mode to a MBR disk, then no.

    You`ll have to keep switching, you are going to have to choose a bios method and stick with it if you want a true simple dual boot.

    I would consider the way you`re doing it a real hassle and wouldn`t think twice about fixing it correctly.

So, basically if we have a computer that doesn't have a UEFI BIOS with Secure Boot, then we can't upgrade to Windows 10? Am I right or wrong here?
