    windows 10 win 7 and vista


    I have windows vista and 7 on dual boot, same drive .
    I ask the board if it is possible to install win 10 on an other partion and keep all 3 on the same drive.
    If it's possible how I will go about.
    thank you for any support

    sure - main problem is you can only have 4 primary partitions in legacy bios install. One way round that is to install Windows 10 in a virtual hard drive!

    or convert the Windows 7 to a logical drive in an extended partition and then install Windows 10 to another logical drive in the extended partition.

    First thing you have to do before attempting anything is to post a shot of Disk Management.

    Make a snip of the entire drive you want to use and save it to your desktop. Then use the Go Advanced option to post your message, there will be a small paper clip icon at the top of your reply click that to add the snip.

    I have no idea what NX is. Never seen it during a Windows 10 install or upgrade. A screenshot/photo would help.

    I don't understand because I had win 10 pro installed for a year now, even had the latest version update.
    what I suspect something went wrong when I installed windows 7 ultimate and vista on a double boot.
