How to Dual Boot Windows 7 and Windows 10. How to easily dual-boot Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 and WIndows 10. However this method should work for WIndows XP, Vista, and Windows 8 as well.

If you are looking to dual boot Windows 10 with Windows 7 already installed, then this tutorial will resolve your endeavor. You can create this dual-boot system from pretty much any version of Windows I am going to show you how easy it is to dual boot both these operating systems, you will get a menu where…


  1. Very good and concise instructions, thank you! I am upgrading a PC with new hard drive. I own Win7 and Win10 and have install disks. In order to get that dual boot screen on startup should Win7 be installed first then Win10 last so that it creates the boot window? Or does order of install not matter?

  2. Ok i need help I had windows 7 then i went to windows 10 but i got bored and now i want to use windows 7 but it wont alow me also if there is a way to use windows 7 will it delete everything

  3. So basically I tripled booted because I have kali Linux, windows 7 and windows 8.1, I kinda wanna go windows 10 and mac with it so I can 5 times boot, but thanks now have windows 8.1

  4. When I created the new partition which I gonna install windows 7 on it I renamed it and then all partitions changed their type into "dynamic" not "basic"…. I'm skeptical neither windows would work when I restart my pc! … this is okay or I shouldn't proceed?? @MDTechVideos

  5. can i install windows 8.1 using the same method you mentioned above on my windows 10 machine.. and still access rest of my drives Like E: , F: ?
    and what would happen if i formatted the disk containing windows 10 files, logged in from windows 8.1?

  6. I have a New 240GB SSD that is looking to be my New C/Drive… I want Clean O/S Partitions but where do all your other Programs go?;… Virus Protection, Games ect that leave a footprint on the C/Drive… Will they have to be in both Windows 7 and 10 Partitions????

  7. is it possible to do the opposite? – dual boot windows xp onto a windows 10 laptop. I have all my original windows xp discs (i just did a clean install on my 'old' dell 3000 desktop), but i have this new laptop also with horrible windows 10 on it and i kind of fancied dual booting windows xp beside windows 10. thanks. i will continue on my search in youtube land.

  8. Hello, thank you for the information I learned a lot. I just have a few questions though. If we don't have a CD and just want to download windows 10 how would that change anything if at all? Is the process different? I would much appreciate it if you let me know. Thank you!

  9. What about the other way around? I have Win 10 and a USB of Windows Vista. It always says that winload.efi cannot be verified for its digital signature and when I do the trick of restarting disabling this feature, it only restarts to Win 10 again overlooking the USB from where I was trying to install Win Vista from.
    I'm in this vicious cycle and don't see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Any ideas?


  10. Great video! It really helped me install Windows 10 as a dual boot os. I have a couple of questions for after W10 is installed though:
    I have W10 on a different hdd than W7 (I originally had a raid drive and couldn't create a partition on it), so my W7 hdd is C drive and my W10 hdd is a partition on another drive).
    (1) Do I need to re-download/install my Nvidia drivers, GeForce Experience, anti-virus software, etc. on the W10 hdd too? Or is there a way to set it up so that W10 also loads those things up from the W7 hdd?
    (2) Since the os hdd is C drive no matter which hdd letter it actually is during installation, will that affect loading (and finding) W7 programs that are actually on the real C drive? Is there anything special I need to do so W10 hdd knows where to look for these files/programs?
    (3) If I plan to use Shadowplay for both os, should I have the video folder be different for each os (assuming that I end up having to install Shadowplay/Nvidia also on the W10 hdd)? I'm worried that having 2 different installed Shadowplay/Nvidia programs may mess up the videos I record when using one or the other OS.
    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for the awesome tutorial! You rock!!!!

  11. I have done everything in the video but I keep getting an error when I boot into windows 10 saying there was a problem with a device connected to your PC the error code is 0 X 0 00009 it also says that this problem can happen when a removable storage device is removed while it's in use or is failing properly connecting any removable storage and resetting your PC May 6th this problem? what should I do??!?!

  12. I want win 10(for gaming dx12) but whats keeping me away is the forced updates and all the spyware build into it. . . If I choose the dual boot option will win 7 be affected in any way, shape or form by win 10 that will be in a different partition?

  13. Decent video, but you don't mention or state the true requirements of Windows 10. I did a clean install of Windows 10 two days ago on a new hard drive and the install took about 17 GB. I even uninstalled all the useless apps and had NO software on the drive. Within 4 hours, this ballooned to over 30 GB after Windows updated itself. (The ISO image on DVD I used was also freshly made for this install, so it was current from the MS Web site). After removing all the backup & system files caused by the updates, I was still left with about 25 GB.

    My current Windows 8.1 rig (again a de-bloated to the best of my ability since it was the OEM HDD and partition and I have no actual Disc to to a true clean install) with no software is currently closer to 35 GB or more.

    So my point is this, to effectively do this for many people will need to realize they should make their partition sizes as large as possible to accommodate the updates and software they will be running. I would recommend each drive partition to be no smaller that 150-200 GB. I would also suggest a third partition for file storage of at least 1 TB. This drive can be seen and files used by BOTH boot partitions. So this would effectively require a 2 TB HDD to pull off.

    Nice video. Thanks. Thumbs up! 🙂
