  1. Cloned 1909 with dual boot won't work as a secondary OS drive to 2004.


    I wanted to use windows 7 as a dual boot but I forgot to remove all drives except for the one I'm installing 2004 to and it got corrupted. It was a feat to get the correct modded drivers installed in the first instance.

    I have my primary OS which has a boot menu of normal and safe mode.

    The seconday OS won't boot. I tried using EasyBCD on it didn't help. I've tried paragon hard driver manager 17 recover (win pe & unbutu). I've tried macrium reflect which although would let me restore from a backup apparantly & I can restore form the system restore points.

    On the windows 10 install media I don't have a recovery option.

    Is there a way to fix this? Initially I just want to boot, no options. I'm on version 2004 but the OS I'm trying to repair is 1909. I've already defraged it.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 1909 Causes Secondary Hard Drive to not be Recognized

    Installing the Windows 10 1909 Update causes my secondary hard drive to not be recognized.

    Steps to confirm issue:

    • Secondary drive not visible in Windows Explorer
    • Secondary drive not visible in device manager
    • Secondary drive not visible in disk manager

    Steps to replicate issue:

    • Installing 1909 update

    Steps to resolve issue:

    • Uninstall 1909 update

    Since updates can only be delayed for so long, an actual fix would be appreciated.

    Dual boot and cloneing

    I seek advice about the possibility of setting up a dual boot system on my existing Windows 10 64 bit pc.

    I have an old redundant PC which I built in 2009 Windows 7 Professional 32bit OS installed.

    I no longer possess the installation disc and am therefore considering cloning the OS and installing this onto my current PC provided that this difference in bit rate could be tolerated.

    So my first question is can I set up a dual boot system incorporating both 64 and 32 bit systems? If not, I have 4 hard drives, small SSDs, and 2 x1TB 2 HDDs, so if necessary I would be willing to dedicate
    one SSD to accommodate the Windows 7 32 bit OS.

    My second question is how do I set up a dual boot system?

    The third question is, could I use Macrium Reflect (free issue) software to clone and if not can you suggest an alternative free system?

    Windows 10

    I suggest you
    clone OS to SSD
    .

    Step 1. Connect the SSD to your computer.

    Step 2. Clone OS to SSD.

    Step 3. Enter into BIOS and set the cloned SSD as the first boot disk and boot from it.

    Step 4. As for the old hard drive, you can reformat the hard drive and take it as your secondary storage after cloning.
