    Triple Boot Win 7/10/10 Preview?


    I have a triple boot on my backup system currently. Win 7/Win 8.1/Win 10 Preview (10240).

    I plan on upgrading the Win 8.1 to Win 10. How will that affect the triple boot menu with two Win 10's?

    I want to stay in the insider program and do not want to remove the "Preview" version.

    The system may provide a different name. If not you will have to learn which one to choose for which OS. There may be a way to change the name in Windows or you can use a boot manager such as EasyBCD to change the name for a BIOS boot system. There are probably similar programs for the newer UEFI systems.

    I have the same setup but I'm going to upgrade the computer's original Win 7 system.

    Ah,, good question. And I have no idea what you'll be able to do. Time will tell I guess.
