    Win7 to win10 upgrade without boot


    Hi all, my desktop that was running windows 7 recently died due to CPU overheating so I upgraded the mobo, cpu and ram. I put together new parts and it posts fine but says no boot drive detected and so won’t load windows 7. Is there any way I can trick it into launching windows 7 so that I can properly upgrade without wiping my drive with a new install of windows 10?? FYI I do not have a dvd drive. Thanks

    :)

    WIN10 /WIN7 Dual boot, WIN7 forced to upgrade to win10, now I can only boot to Primary WIN10 drive

    I have a WIN10 install on a 256 SSD (DRIVE 2)

    and had a win7 install on a 1tb WD Black HD (DRIVE 5)

    My primary boot was WIN10 (D2) and always had the option of picking wich drive to boot to on start up.

    I was recently forced to upgrade my WIN7 (D5) to WIN 10. It completed the update and I was using the opperating system on my 1 tb HD and it was working fine. Then I shut off the computer and came back about 4 days later and I couldnt boot to my second
    win10 install. (there may have been an update to the win10 before I shut it down)

    I went into boot up options and selected the 2nd win10(win7) Drive 5 as primary boot and it reverted back to the original win 10(drive 2) boot.

    What is the best way to have a dual boot win10 system and how can I change my boot up options so that I can continue to choose the boot up drive?

    WIthout a doubt the upgrade Win7 drive is still there and can be used, but there must be a boot settings that is preventing it from being accessed.

    If i am not allowed to have a dual boot WIN10/Win10 machine, can I revert back to WIN7 on the upgraded drive?

    Also, original WIN10 install was from a win8 upgrade, 2nd one is from a win7 upgrade, both fully registered versions of WINdows.

    Much apprecaited

    Dual Boot Upgrade Q: Win7 and Win10 Preview

    I currently have a dual boot with Win7 Pro and Win10 Preview. Now, as I understand, to keep both win7 and Win10, I need to purchase a new license for Win10 as the separate partition installation is not eligible for free upgrade program.

    So, I'm planning to upgrade my Win7 itself. Does anyone try this? I'm not sure how it is going to work after the upgrade? Am I going to have Win10 (New, Release version) and Win10 Preview?

    If thats the case, how can I remove the Win10 preview installation? It doesnt make any sense to have the Preview version if I have the Release version on the other boot

    Thanks in advance..

    Win7 to Win10 upgrade issue ... 0xC1900101-0x30017 and then 0x40017

    hi, Andre,

    yes, i think my note did say that i already created the bootable ISO on a DVD and started the Win10 upgrade from there. i already contacted the vendor and he gave me a list of Win10 drivers, suggested the bootable ISO upgrade method but did not recommend
    a new BIOS update.

    My PC is a ZOTAC CI320none with an Intel processor running a licensed Win7 Home Premium SP1.
