    Let me expand on my thought,. For what I do I find that using a dual boot is a lot easier for me to use than to set up a virtual machine. It took me only about 30 to 40 minutes to set the dual boot up and install the insider build.

    All in all VM's are excellent but now I find a dual boot serves my needs better.

    Don't get me wrong, I wasn't criticizing Jeff, just making sure less advanced users, don't get the wrong idea:)
    Another option would be to native boot an insider VHD: Hyper-V - Native Boot VHD - Windows 10 Forums
    It is important for some people to be able to test their drivers with each upgrade, specially now that Microsoft is tightening the Certificate screws, when they have non-over-the-counter hardware.

    Thanks for the input, as usual. I will check out the link you posted and see what I can do with that some time today or soon. I just find it so easy to set up a dual boot and I find that I'm too lazy at times to learn new things.

    Yup.. I be a lazy bunny.

    Huh? I find it more a pain to set up a multi-boot system, specially when you want to nuke one
    The VM is the lazy mans route, no having to fix the boot loader later.

    Multi boot on separate disks is a breeze without almost any danger to other systems.

    HDDs don't care too much about SATA2 or 3, even SSDs are not overly affected.

    I just go into disk management and delete the partition .. then merge it.
