This is what it shows when I go to Disk Management:

And this is when I right click on my SSD drive and click the shrink option:

I shrunk 80g of the ssd a second ago like you said

Did you notice you had a 78G unallocated? How many times did you shrink your Win7 partition?
Now, remove your HDD, boot from your Win 10 installation media and install on the blank (raw) partition.

All I've done so far is shrunk that SSD by 80,000mbs. I was going to do the free windows 10 upgrade they are offering everyone and I haven't even downloaded it yet.

Download Win10, create a DVD or USB drive, and do a clean install.

Sorry if I'm making you mad with all these dumb questions.

So if I do that last thing you said about downloading Windows 10 I'll be able to go back and forth between 7 and 10 whenever?

Hi,
I wouldn't make a habit of going back and forth
No telling when Micro... will enforce reactivating the same key that was used to upgrade with

To dual boot 7 and 10 legally you'd need 2 completely separate activation keys so if that is your intention buy win-10 or another win-7 and dual boot away

I just went ahead and upgraded my windows 7 to 10 and used my 7 activation key and then reverted back to 7. I made a partition for Windows 10 and downloaded it to a bootable usb drive and then installed it into that partition I made. So now I can dual boot between the 2. Legal or not that's the way I did it.

So far it's been working fine for me. I still never was able to fix my slowed down internet speeds on my windows 7 but when I boot into windows 10 the internet speed is fast again. I have another thread posted about that and I never found a fix for it. It's almost a lost cause for me at this point.
