Windows 7: Install Acer Recovery Disks (Windows 7 64X Home Premium)

Install Acer Recovery Disks (Windows 7 64X Home Premium)

First I plan to remove the main drive which is 240GB solid state drive with Windows 64X 10 Home Premium from my desktop. My desktop is Acer Aspre M3450. Then put another 240GB solid state in and install Windows 7 from my Acer Recovery Disks which have 3 DVD's to install. My question is that should I format the new solid state drive or not necessary just put in the first Acer Recover disk to install? I already made a backup copy of Windows 10 64X Home Premium on my 64GB USB. I am planning to setup the virtual machine with both Windows 7 and Windows 10 in my desktop but not sure when I will? Oh one more thing before sending my message -- Am I suppose to restart the desktop so I can get in Display settings to pick CD/DVD to use while my first disk of Acer Recovery already is in the CD/DVD drive.

Your help would be appreciated with this about what to do to install Windows 7 on my desktop.

Thank you,

John

Just put the disc in, it should do everything for you. Then you can use Partition Wizard if you want to make any changes.

As I understood, you are replacing the Win 7 HP SSD with a blank one and in that one you're going to work on. Correct?
Did you do a copy of Windows 10 64X Home Premium on your 64GB USB or did you made a disk image?
As you have a desktop computer, why don't you install Win 10 on the blank SSD and use Win 7 on the other. During boot you choose with one you want to work on.
Remember: During installation ONLY the target SSD should be attached to the MB.

Want to say thank you for latest reply. Here is the information that you want to know more about my desktop. Yes I did make a backup of disk image with Windows 64 (with the latest update of last week) on to my 64 GB USB flash drive. I am planning to unplug the back cables of my first SSD with Windows 10 and will put the second SSD in the hard drive bay in my desktop. Then will use my Acer Recovery Disks to install Windows 7 on second SSD. When that's done then I will plug the cables back on my first SSD. So I can boot to choose Windows 7 or Windows 10 on my desktop. I wonder if I don't have to plug the cables from the first SSD and go ahead to install Acer Recovery Disks on second SSD or not a good idea. Your help will be an asset to this. Now I am not sure what you mean about your last comment below.

Remember: During installation ONLY the target SSD should be attached to the MB.

Thank you,

Now you are asking about " Remember: During installation ONLY the target SSD should be attached to the MB. " Yes both SSD's are attached to motherboard. Took me a while trying to figure out with the word " MB " then I realized that MB is a short word for Motherboard. Sorry about this.

That's how you should do

That's not a good idea

What I meant is that when you're installing win 7 by the Acer Recovery Disks to install Windows 7 on second SSD, make sure that the SSD is the only disk attached to the MB, that is, the Win 10 SSD must be detached from the MB. If you don't do it, you can mess the two disks.

Be advised,
the licenses for both OS's are motherboard tied UNLESS they are retail.

Roy -- I understand that the operating system have to be licenced. With Windows 7 64X Home Premium come from my Acer Recovery Disks but I see the tag on one side of my desktop for the licence of Windows 7 64X from Microsoft. Now about Windows 10 64X Home Premium come from free upgrade through Microsoft like everyone got them from Microsoft since last year. I have the program called " ShowKeyPlus " to show me the activation key of Windows 10. I believe that I should be okay to run both operating systems with valid keys from Microsoft. Am I correct about this? Please let me know about this.

Thank you,

John

Hi Imcanadian,

Using the Acer recovery discs on the ORIGINAL system, (motherboard & SSD), should auto activate. OEM & RETAIL
However changing to a new SSD:--
OEM :-- may result in you having to Activate via phone using the COA sticker code.

Your W10 Digital Entitlement works in the same way.
However having working W7 & W10 on the same computer, using the same base licence violates the terms of the EULA.

As far as i know MS has not published a definative document regarding this situation YET, i suspect they will.
So following this forums guidelines, and MS's EULA agreement which you accepted on installation of the OS,
I would have to say your secondary OS is non-genuine.
