    dual boot win 10/ win 7


    Hi, I have been tried to install win 7 64 bits on dual boot with win 10 64 bits already installed on my laptop but always failed. I've searched tutorials but didn't find complete ones .Most of the tutos are about installing win 10 over wind 7 on dual boot but not the opposite.Please help!

    It is same - create some unallocated space on drive, boot from installation drive, install in unallocated space.

    If PC id uefi, you have to turn off secure boot. Also only use usb2 slots.

    What is to say really. You do not say why it failed. Problem is more likely due to problem of installing Windows 7 rather than dual booting.

    Are we playing 20 questions?

    We cannot help you unless YOU provide us details of error messages, things you have tried etc. Regrettably we are not clairvoyant.

    You might want to read this thread:
    Windows 10 Windows 7 Dual Boot - Can it be done Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    It contains the procedure for applying the Windows 7 image to an NTFS partition and setting up dual boot manually that way if the regular method of installing Windows 7 is failing.
