    Cannot install Windows 7 as dual boot


    Rufus (v3.14-latest copy we find) apparently doesn't work with Windows 10, and the Microsoft iso download of Windows 7 is a French or Korean version. What other options are there for instatlling a dual boot Win 7 with Win 10?

    :)

  3. Install Windows 7 dual boot on Windows 10 laptop with GPT partition

    Hi Krishna,

    Really appreciate your advice! But, unfortunately, neither of your suggestions re shutdown worked for me.

    In answer to your questions:

    • What is the make and model of the computer? - Lenovo B570
    • What are the troubleshooting steps that you have already performed? - all that I can find on the internet, eg stopping quick resume, powercfg, etc etc etc
    • What exactly happens when you try to shut down the laptop? - the power button light stays on, and the fan speed increases
    • How exactly are you trying to install Windows 7? - keep Windows 10, reinstall Windows 7 in a new partition for dual boot.

    Note: I only have 1 hard disk in my laptop.

    Thank you and any other expert will is willing to help out!

    Re-install xp in dual-boot configuration

    I had an installation of xp . Then I added an installation of windows 7 and dual-booted both. Now the xp installation won`t boot and I want to repair / re-install it. If I do this , will it remove the windows 7 boot-loader and if it does then how do I get back my working dual-boot configuration ?
