    Is my computer dual booted with the same windows license? 6V6kmFV9ThFbKYOAHTiaFe_Hb9y5_30U-7pfRrSPhHA.jpg

    So, I bought a laptop with preinstalled windows 10 on HDD. Now, I recently had an SSD installed on my laptop. But I am confused as to how I have the same win 10 on both drive C and D (with different data and settings ). Does someone have any idea what's happening over here? Is it safe to format Drive D now That I am using C, or do I have to do something else in order to properly remove the old windows data?

    I have C as the primary Windows drive



    But D also has the old win data and is bootable

    Dual Booting with Windows 8.1


    The procedure below will allow you to boot Windows separately or in dual boot configuration.
    Here's what I recommend to do:
    1. Disconnect the drive containing Windows 8.1
    2. Install Windows 10 with one drive connected.
    3. After step 2, reconnect the drive containing Windows 8.1
    4. Boot up Windows 8.1. Open disk management and take a note of the drive letter of Windows 10 OS.
      NOTE: if you boot up Windows 10, then take a note of Windows 8.1 drive letter
    5. Open Admin command prompt and type: bcdboot X:\windows where X: is the drive letter of Windows 10 (Windows 8.1 if you boot from Windows 10 in step 4)
    6. Reboot the PC. You should have a dual boot screen.

    NOTE: To break off the dual boot setting, Win+R->msconfig->boot and delete the none default entry on the list.

  4. Is my computer dual booted with the same windows license?

    Performing Dual boot on the computer (Windows 10 and windows xp).

    Hi Vaibhav,



    You will not face any system performance issues on performing dual boot by loading older Windows version first (Windows XP) and then the latest Windows version (Windows 10) on the computer.



    To perform dual boot on the computer, you first have to create partitions to load both the OS onto the drives. Create disk partition by following the steps below and perform dual boot on the computer.




    • Press Windows logo + R keys on the keyboard to open
      Run command, type diskmgmt.msc and press
      Enter.


    • Right click on OS(CIs my computer dual booted with the same windows license? :) hard drive and select
      Shrink Volume.

    • Allocate the disk space in MB and click on
      Shrink. An Unallocated drive will be created.

    • Right click on the Unallocated drive and select
      New Simple Volume option. Follow the onscreen instructions and provide a drive name/letter in the process.

    • Perform dual boot and check if the issue is resolved on the computer.


    Write to us with the status of performing dual boot on the computer in the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
