Currently my laptop has Windows 7 installed. I would like to dual boot Windows 7 and 8 but have a couple questions....
In the past when I did dual boots, each OS had a different drive letter. One OS was C:, the other was D:. Is this still the case? It has been a while since dual booted Windows. Basically I want the ability to remove the Win7 partition at some point and switch over to Win8. When I remove the Win7 partition, I want Win8 to be the C: drive. Hope that makes sense.
If I install Win8 to a different partition while Win7 is already installed, will it create a dual boot menu, like it used to several years ago, with an option to choose which OS?
I know there are ways to edit the system drive letter afterwards, but always ran in to issues with things not working properly. I know I can use a VM, but I want to get all my apps/configs/drivers working on a dual boot system for testing and do not want to do a reinstall of everything. Just switch over when I have everything set.
