Here is what I did:
- Installed a new SSD next to my current build which has an HDD with Windows 7.
- Partitioned my SSD into a OS one, page partition and file partition.
- Installed an unregistered Windows 10 Pro edition on the SSD into the OS partition from an USB stick. It's a student edition, havn't entered the key yet before anyone asks.
My computer recognizes the SSD and HDD without problems and both systems (Win7/10) are fully functionable without any deeper complications.
Problem is though, that my system doesn't recognize the other operating system when I boot from the other physical disk. When I'm on Win7 on my HDD, it wont recognize the Win10 on my SSD during start-up and vice-versa.
At the moment, to access either system I have to increase the Disk Priority on my Gigabyte F5 BIOS for the specific disk device during boot-up, which is really worrysome, because I'd prefer not to be inside the BIOS unless I really have to. How can I make it so that I can choose which operating system I want to launch like it does normally in dual booting.
Which bothers me most is that whenever I'm on Win7 or Win10, the system I am on becomes the C drive, shouldn't that be more static?
I'm still quite unexperienced when it comes to operating systems and hardware so I apologize in advance if I did something retarded or if this is a really dumb question. If there is a better way to formulate this question I'm open for suggestions :D
