    The did say they want 1,000,000,000 devices didn't they. Then they should think about "Infrastructure". Maybe the same amount and type of servers that their Bing side uses.
    I know, I know, I know <raises hand and waves it in the air> They can make all the Bing servers send out upgrades too!

    Do you really think that many people want 10? I am not so sure. I am having issues myself with windows 10 & 7 not wanting to dual boot like in the past (Long story not for the news thread) but I don't give up that easy. I am going to keep trying to do the dual boot with 10 & 7
    Groze, you probably already know this, but the oldest OS needs to be installed first, then the newer one.

    As far back as I can remember [at least a few years] that has always been a maxim.

    Then others will get it from then on thru the 1st of Aug. Not a delay just a realistic way of deploying all of the upgrades over time. MS never said everyone would get the upgrade on the 39th. Sigh.. it would have been nice.

    Their servers could not handle all of those updates in one day.

    I think that's what I said.. with the exception of the typo.. 29th not the 39th.

    Right, but it never hurts to remind us of things that may be general knowledge to some, but new to others. That's why I said, "you may already know . . .

    I found a great way to do this. It is not actually Dual Booting but it works.
    1. Install Windows 10 on an eSata external drive or a USB 3 external drive.
    2. In your Bios set that drive as the 1st. Boot option after your DVD drive. Have Windows 7 as the 2nd.
    3. Boot into Windows 10 and when you restart to get back into Windows 7 just turn off the external Drive and your machine will boot into Windows 7.

    This method works great.

    I have been dual booting since day one. I have two SSD's with Win 7 on one and Win 10 on the other. When booting I have to hit the f11 key and that gives me a choice on where I want to go or the boot options.

    Older first, newer later OS applies to dual boot on same disk different partition (of course) but for dual boot on two different disks it's best to physically disconnect at least the drive with one OS and optionally prepare the disk by formatting it in appropriate file format and setting it as primary, active and with a distinctive name. That greatly enhances OS's ability to recognize it properly. Using EasyBCD on both disks (later when everything is reconnected) a BOOT order could be set easily with either disk set as first in BOOT order.

    This is basically what I do.
