    I am looking to move from windows 7 to windows 10 and would like to know if there is an easy way to move all my stuff from one OS to the other? I have both installed on my SSD but now that support is ending for win 7 I would like to move over to my win 10 install.

  2. dual boot to win 7

    I have a near new PC (kit built) that had Win 7 home edition installed. I did the solicited win 10 upgrade. I was in the process of moving at the time and didn't use the PC much for several months. I noticed when I upgraded to Win 10 as it was booting
    up there was the possibility of selecting either Win 10, or Win 7. I assumed this was a dual boot option, but didn't even try the Win 7 option for several months--due to the moving. When I did use it, I used Win 10 to try to get accustomed to it. When I
    had a need to use Win 7, I tried that selection, but have been VERY disappointed in the extremely limited functionality of the Win 7 "option".

    My primary question is: Is the how this " Win 10 upgrade is supposed to work? or did I do something wrong when I was starting up the new installation?

    Dual booting with Win 10 Pro and Win 7 Pro

    I'll be receiving a new computer with Win 10 Pro as my computer w/ Windows 7 Pro crashed. I'd like to take the hard drive with Windows 7 Pro and install it into the new one to have dual booting. Any problem doing that and what steps are needed? Thank
    you.

    Win 7 / 10 Dual Booting Ethernet Problems

    I

    -Use Win 7

    -Recently decided to dual boot with Win 10

    -Have gotten to a stage of seeing a Win 10 desktop

    -No internet connection via ethernet

    -Check device manager

    -No ethernet network adapter in this existence

    -Boot back to win 7

    -It's right there

    -Boot back to win 10

    -It's pulled a disappearing act again

    -Try installing drivers

    -"Cannot install drivers. No Intel(R) adapters are present in this computer"

    -Boot back to win 7

    -Yes there are Intel adapters

    -Here I am asking on the forums

    TLDR: Ethernet works fine on win 7 but when i boot to win 10, the adapter doesn't even register as a device

    What is my problem and how do I fix it?
