    Yeah, I hate that! I don't want the same backgrounds on all of my computers. I want to be able to change things up.

    You can turn Syncing off in settings, under accounts, I think is where it is.

    dual boot W10 10586th2/14291 rs1 Win. Insider since Jan. 2015

    I have win 7 x64 and Win insider test build 10532 on the same NTFS hdd in a dual boot configuration both are working fine.

    I've been on the test builds as a daily driver since 10029 and mostly use the win 7 x64 primary partition as a storage drive now .

    My question is can I update the Win 7 partition normally with the Win 10 RTM installer tool or ISO and keep the test build unaltered on it's present primary partition and specifically still have an intact graphical dual boot loader like I do now and use both OS independently as I can now .

    Sent from Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview advanced test Build 10532

    Thanks I thought so I was mainly concerned about the existing boot loader being deleted or not working and then havingv to do it the old way or use a 3rd part boot loader .

    I'm presuming that your PC dual boots normally as before since an in place upgrade to RTM on the other hdd partition like I want to do? No other problems on your Win 10 /Win 10 dual boot configuration ? .

    I'm assuming I can link both Win 10 OS to my MS acct and link the 2 Win 10 UI email clients to my primary e mail as long as I clean both win 10 mail clients out regular .

    I've upgraded 2 Win 7 configurations here to RTM outside of installing the test builds on this one without any problems outside of some of the buggy earlier test builds that seem to be pretty stable by now in 10532 and RTM (for the most part) ☻

    As long as the boot loader still works the same I'm thinking I'm good to go. ofc even if doesn't I can figure something out that wouldn't be a show stopper.

    No problems with mine. I've only got two partitions on my laptop, Windows 10 and 10 Insider. My boot files are on the Windows 10 partition.

    I did just the opposite as you on my desktop, I had Windows 10 only installed. I had problems with a piece of hardware, so I created a second partition and clean installed Windows 10 to that. It automatically set up dual booting. Couldn't get my hardware problem resolved so I did a clean install of Windows 7 to the second partition and it just changed the second Windows 10 entry in the boot loader to Windows 7 and that was it.

    Sounds good I'm assuming my boot files are on the pre existing win 7 x64 OS partition hopefully the Win 10 RTM upgrade installer can make the appropriate changes that way I don't have to figure out something else or or go into the boot menu manually with each cold start or re start or worse after it loads one or the other windows 10 ☻

    No dual boot partitions on the other PC's here so I didn't have any boot loader concerns .
    I know I'm being lazy ☻☻

    I have been dual booting win 7 and 10 insider since last January with no problems. Also win 8.1 pro and win 10 insider on another computer. Now both computers have win 10 RTM and win 10 insider. Have had no problems with either as far as dual booting and updates
