    As long as the first partition is the bootable partition, it should.
    If the second partition contains Linux, it is also bootable according to the following:

    Do they get deleted as well?
    When you upgrade to a new version like the Creators Update you are installing a complete new OS. Previous updates to your old OS are no longer relevant so are not kept. You can't uninstall a 1607 update from 1703, it makes as much sense as wanting to uninstall a Windows 7 update from a system upgraded to Windows 10.

    Right I see. Can Windows.old safely be deleted?

    It should be automatically deleted 10 days after the upgrade. If you can't wait (and are sure you don't want to roll back) the safest way to delete it is to use Disk Clean-up, click the 'clean up system files' button and 'previous windows installation(s)' will be one the things you can tick to clean up - Option One in this tutorial.

    Yes, I remember this back from the Win 8.1 to Win 10 upgrade before I clean installed Win 10.

    With all this talk about how to make a multiple-.ISO USB, I'm surprised that no one mentioned the tool Easy2Boot.

    I allows you to have a bootable mini grub / grub2 bootloader that will then allow you to boot any particular .ISO that you have, works with both (legacy) BIOS and (modern) UEFI, can be used to boot just about any bootable .ISO out there, and also does make use of the multiple partition scheme that was discussed here to boot multiple versions of Windows discs.

    I currently have a 128 GB USB that contains a lot of AV rescue discs, Windows install discs, and general utilities that I keep with me for use whenever, wherever...

    Can your 128 GB USB drive be used to keep personal files?

    Win7 Ult + Win10 Pro + Win10 Enterprise - all x64

    I have 2 Win 10 Pro test installations and 1 Win 10 Enterprise, the latter I just allowed the 1703 update in. It took forever and reverted my display driver to the default Windows one and the Nvidia installer fails to install the current driver every time I try, even when I try a clean installation. Maybe a reboot might help, will check at another time as it took the best part of this afternoon just for this one OS.
    I've booted out to Win 7 where I will stay for a while.
    Other things that needed attention were, the Vista Windows Mail fiddle had to be redone, that now works.
    The boot menu had to be adjusted as this is like a new system installation. If you multi-boot it will place itself as the default.
    I also have to fix my Quicklaunch bar again when I have the time.

    Sure there have been tools that allow this. However, the 1703 change allows use of native windows commands etc.

    You can now create a native bootable uefi version of full windows 10 on a standard usb flash drive.
