win10 and win7 install

Postby chrisangus » Sat Sep 14, 2019 11:06 am

Ok, so I have UEFI setup booting 2 versions of win 10, but I want to install win7 too, when I create a partition in the free space I am not able to boot to this partition for the install, any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

chrisangus,

Does your Win7 boot media load to the Windows Install screen? Where is the error?

Having trouble creating a bootable flash drive now, no matter which app i use it will not boot, just continues to the BIU interface, strange that the usb i made for BIU boots the laptop fine.

I used a 64-bit Win7 ISO with Rufus to make a "GPT Partition Scheme" "UEFI (non CSM) Target System" USB flash drive.

I had to change my BIOS settings to CSM Enabled, Secure Boot Disabled, otherwise Win7 wouldn't install. Boot the UFD in UEFI mode, not Legacy mode.

Change the Partition Type of your Win10 partitions to BootIt Hidden before booting the Win7 UFD.
