    installing 10 over 8.1 in dual boot with 7


    I have a dual boot 7 and 8.1, which are on separate drives. I'd like to keep 7 and install 10 over 8.1, I have downloaded 10 on usb. My question is do I have to disconnect the windows 7 drive before I try to install 10?.

    help needed.

    Hello Reeshead, and welcome to Ten Forums. _

    You would want to leave your Windows 7 drive connected so that it will be included in the boot options screen.
