    Windows 10

    Hello, I have installed Windows 10 Pro in UEFI mode in my SSD and I created another partition of my HD (1TB HD) of 250GB to install Windows 8.1 Pro, is it possible to install? Does it have to be in UEFI mode too?

    Edit.: I created the bootable pen drive in GPT mode for UEFI, but when I go in BIOS override and select the UEFI pen drive, there is a black screen and then it returns me to the BIOS again, why is that?

    Hello ViTosS,

    If you like, you should be able to use step 4 with the USB instead of at boot.

    7 and 10 on various machines

    Ok Shawn now I have been trying 10 and getting a little more used to it - have figured out how to manipulate the panel look so that it is not so intrusive - so I thought I may as well dual boot the 7 and the 10 so that I can still access my emails in 7 for the time being and still have 10 on tap as it were.

    My plan is to clone the 7 install from the 250GB SSD it is on now to an unallocated 500GB SSD then use the larger drive to install the 10 to.

    I only have an ISO for 10 as I really am not that keen on USB sticks - can I install from the DVD as per the instructions and if so do I have to disable the secure and fast boot also - I think in all honesty it is already set that way. I am guessing to that I shall have to create a partition using Partition Wizard for the 10 install on the 500GB clone. I know it means setting it up all over again but I have some time off work coming soon (surgery) and it will give me something to work on.

    If I have to I will make a stick to use and I am sorry if I am being a bit super cautious with my data and emails - just the nature of the beast, plus I know you have so much more on your plate now but I need to get it from the source person - not that I distrust anyone else but you have always been such help to me in the past.

    Hey John,

    Actually, you could install Windows 10 using just the ISO file for the dual boot if you like.

    Ok so I shall do that from step 3 in the tutorial and if all goes well then I plan to dual boot this smaller work laptop. I say that because I did have problems a good while ago now with a dual boot 7 and 8 I think it was where the boot always went straight to the 8 without giving me the choice.
    Thanks again for helping out your'e a brick

    It would be using step 4B with an ISO in Windows.

    7 and 10 on various machines

    Hello Shawn cut a VERY long story short I have the clone ready to go.

    I have been going through the tutorial and I just want to know if I reduce the C: (7) partition on the 500GB drive with Partition Wizard to give me say 250GB unallocated space remaining when I go through the process is the 10 going to be installed to it or do I just pick the unallocated space on that drive because I am not sure?

    Also because of the little extra links re the activation code and that I have installed 10 on the machine using a smaller drive before will that code if it is stored on the machine activate the dual boot?.

    My last query is I have Kaspersky security on the 7 install is that going to cover or affect the 10 install?? or should I instant MSE for 10? A bit of a quandary as per two AV's on one machine.
