It's long since I use bootloaders etc. and as far as I remeber there is a sequence to it, lower versions first than higher or so, else boot loader can getcorrupted..

And need to install a scanner/printer to the pc and prefer to go with win 7 for it and how to go abt is the question? the boot sequence and the boot drive 8.1 is a minimal drive hardly 20-30 GN and how to increase it's size and install win 7 in it, keeping the other win 10 as it is?

Found this on howtogeek site,


Typically, you should install the newer operating system last. For example, if you want to dual-boot Windows 7 and 10, install Windows 7 and then install Windows 10 second. However, this may not always be necessary — installing Windows 7 after Windows 8 or 8.1 seems to work.

now, is it ok, to go ahead and resize drives and install 7 in win 8,1 drive? tks .


it's not clear, if a drive already exists, can one install a diff lower version in it? as the article saus only abt mutiboot installation and not abt any reorganizationn, later?
