    10 on both partitions


    Hi,

    Just curious, I have dual booted 10 and 7 but is it possible to install the 10 upgrade on the 7 partition and run as two seperate OS as I do now?

    As has been commented in other threads, there is a possible licensing issue, depending on how your licenses have been acquired. The ethics of that are left to you.

    Depending on your storage limitations, it might be better to run 7 in a virtual environment, less complicated that way and no dual boot issues.

    - i.e. if both have the same origin.

    Gentlemen, I have no intention of changing the 10\7 setup I have, I was merely curious as to whether it was feasable or not, but thank you for your replies.
