Title: Concurrent installations of Win7 and Win10 on same PC possible?
Post by JSS on Mar 19th, 2020 at 4:11pm
I have two internal 500GB SSDs in my desktop PC.  Win7 Pro SP1 is installed with four partitions on one of them, and the other is completely clean; both are NTFS formatted.  For the sake of brevity, I'll refer to the Win7 SSD as SSD1 and the blank SSD as SSD2.   

I would like to do a clean install of Win10 on SSD2, without affecting Win7 on SSD1 in any way.  I'm sure it must be possible, but would appreciate advice on how to go about it.  TIA.

It will depends on you, but the first  step for you is to decide if you want to use a bootmanager or to maintain  the 2 Operative Systems completely independent each other and boot each of them manually, through the BIOS features.
