    Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281

    And now, let me add another drive mess to the mix:

    I don't know what's happened . . . either Windows or I did something incredibly stupid! I'm guessing it was probably me, but can't be sure, since Windows 10 Pro was changed to Windows 10 Home. Wow!

    I've been dual booting Windows 10 RTM with Windows 10 Insider since the beginning, but I no longer have the RTM version on this machine; in fact, the HDD holding Windows 10 Insider has been expanded to its full potential and there's no longer a partition for RTM.

    It looks like I'm going to have to do a complete reinstall of both in order to straighten out this mess.

    I know there's a tutorial to dual boot Win 7/8.x and 10, but is there one for booting from RTM to Insider? It's been so long since I set this machine up that I'm not too sure of what will work or not anymore.

    BTW, I'm using a 500 GB HDD with Windows 10 (that used to be my dual boot drive) and an unused 240 GB HDD (it's not hooked up).

    Issues I've seen:
    • DVD detected as HDD
    • DVD detected as Removable Drive
    • DVD not showing up at all in Explorer
    • DVD showing up in Explorer but can't read discs
    • Drivers/device can't start according to device manager
    It definitely is.

    Oh my! The snail-paced teener Acer is only at 76% preparing to install. Might as well watch paint dry.

    I have 4 different version of Win 10 on my machine - I use this software for booting.
    Install 1st OS - then Easy BCD - than use it to add each additional OS to the boot process.

    EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies

    HTH

    Free version has worked well for me for years

    Thanks, 24c. I've never used EasyBCD, nor done it that way before, but I'll try anything once.

    I agree Dave, but I would not be surprised to see them release builds at anytime/any day in the near future - crunch time is here.
    Could be a fun ride for the next few weeks.
