Dual boot - Win 7 Pro 64-bit and Win 10 Pro 64-bit
 
 

SIW and gregrocker - thanks for your very good info.

I have a Dell Optiplex 7010 MT that dual boots Win 7 Pro SP1 64-bit and Win 10 Pro 64-bit. Your posts here confirm that I'm in UEFI. That's good to know.

EXCEPT ... that this UEFI 64-bit dual-booting PC will NOT boot from bootable CDs that were made for my older PC running XP Pro SP3 32-bit. Even though in my BIOS the setting for Enable Legacy Option ROMs is checked (enabled).

Is there any trick to getting my UEFI 64-bit PC to boot from bootable legacy CDs?

Thanks!
