    Windows 10 Mirror Boot Partition


    Does Windows 10 allow to mirror the boot partition? I am on a Windows 8.1 system, with a 1 TB hard disk (GPT), which contains all my data and system partitions.

    Now I want to add a separate 1 TB hard disk, on which I would like to mirror the system/ boot hard disk on.

    Is this possible on Windows 10 ? Because it seems it is not on Windows 8.1.

    Thus thinking about upgrading.

    I have no hard ware level support for RAID.

    :)

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

    How to go about building a tri-boot system?

    i dual boot all the time, and going in to tri boot is easy.

    step 1) partition the drive in to 3 partitions ( leaving 1 empty for the linux installer. )
    step 2) install windows on the first 2 partitions.
    step 3) install linux, and let it auto partition the remaining space. ( i recommend at least 30gb of space for linux, because it will make things a lot easier. )

    step 4) enjoy.

  4. Windows 10 Mirror Boot Partition

    Boot windows installation within a partition?

    Damnit, I knew thats what you wanted with your first post! I deleted my post because JMCSLOB confused me lol.


    Hm, if you Follow this guide (Replace words "flash driive" with 160GB hard drive) How to Create a Bootable Windows 7 or Vista USB Drive for both partitions and then to do a dummy install of windows 8 on the last part of the HDD it should give you the option to boot Windows 7/8 Installer or boot into windows 8.
    Edit: On step 4 you will want to make sure you size the partition correctly... or you can use the windows gui tool in control panel.


    Once you get that far you can just delete windows 8 from the boot menu using MSCONFIG and delete the partition.
