1) Boot into windows 10. Open Disk Management functionality window & take two types of snaps. One snap of the standard/default Disk Management window view. To take the second type of view : in the Disk Management window, click View in the top menu bar, select Top & then Disk List & take the snap. Now you have to upload the two snaps & share with us. Make sure that the snaps are clear enough.
It may help here from sir gregrocker :
Disk Management - How to Post a Screenshot of | Windows 10 Tutorials

For eg.
The Disk Management window's standard view is below that has to be taken snap of:

Attachment 405551

To get the other view, click View button from the standard view which is marked with green circle in the below image.

Attachment 405552

From View menu, select Top & then Disk List & the view is ready for the snap.
Then you will get the desired view which has to be snapped. It would be something like :

Attachment 405553

Let us have snaps & I am checking the other things in between.

Thanks & Regards. ...
Here Are The Two Snaps:

Hi All,
@SweeX : Sir,

TASK-1

1) What is that Detta (D:) partition ? Is that for Data purposes only ?
2) Not even residuals of windows 8! Windows 10 booting/working good & flawlessly ?
3) Where do you plan to install windows 7, Where is that partition ? I think you should shrink (c:) to make 100 GB partition for Win 7 installation. Be careful & do that. Can you do that ? Get us Disk Management window's view after doing that.

TASK-2

4) What is the win7 iso's name, version, etc. Where did you find/download that ?

TASK-3

5) Open elevated Windows PowerShell in Win10 :
Open Elevated Windows PowerShell in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

Then type in that PowerShell Window exactly as :
Confirm-SecureBootUEFI

& Press enter.

What are the results/outcome in the PowerShell Window ?

Let us know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi,
@SweeX : Sir,

TASK-1

1. Windows 10 Does work fine, however the BCD has a problem every time i reboot.
What's the problem, Error code, etc. ?

TASK-2

I assume that you use English version of windows. We are going to check the integrity of your downloaded win7 x64 sp1 professional iso by calculating & verifying it's check sums with the original check sums. You have to compare SHA-1 check sum which is :

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
SHA1: 0BCFC54019EA175B1EE51F6D2B207A3D14DD2B58

2. Make this download : https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/hashmyfiles-x64.zip

3. Extract the zip file to a folder & execute 'HashMyFiles.exe'

4. Drag & Drop or Copy & Paste your iso on/in the HashMyFiles window.

5. Compare the SHA-1: check sums.

TASK-3

6. no pls

Why are you getting afraid ? It won't make any changes to your system but just tell the status. That's all. It is needed!

Let us know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Task-1

1) Windows 10 Has BCD Problem Everytime i may boot, some times won't. basically first the BCD is called "Windows Boot Manager" but after i reboot or shut down it comes back to "Windows" and then to fix it i have to delete the "Windows" Option from bios then it will came back to "Windows Boot Manager" so i can boot.
i don't know the error code

2) Here is the SHA-1 checksum:
Mine:0bcfc54019ea175b1ee51f6d2b207a3d14dd2b58
compared to your and it's the same

3) The result i get on Powershell is this:

Not able to understand. Can you explain a little ? What happens ? What you do & How you do it to get rid of that ?

2. The iso is identical & untouched.

3. The result is False which means secure boot is disabled well.

(((Confirm-SecureBootUEFI can be run on any windows 8, 8.1 & 10 from elevated Windows Powershell. Here is a short article about how to interpret it's results :
Confirm-SecureBootUEFI )))

CSM & Legacy Boot option is not available on/for your Apollo Lake Platform. First we would concentrate on your BCD problem because it can fail/corrupt win 7 installation.

Let us know.

Hi,
@SweeX : Sir,
I would like to look into BCD problem first but i would like to properly cover against the risks. Here are some queries & the troubleshooting steps will depend on it.
1. Do you have a spare computer to support ?
2. You have been backing up data but did you ever make a System Image ? System Image is an exact image of the system crucial partitions. It would make sure that we can revert system back to the present status if something goes wrong while backing up data can only provide the backed up data, files & not the system!
3. Did you actually try & ended up in a broken installation of win 7 ? because it seems your BCD is corrupted due to that. How you lost win 8 ?
4. Do you have any external/spare hard disk ? that would be needed for the System Image.

Let us know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi,
@SweeX : Sir,

The BCD Error is not really an issue
One never knows when it becomes an issue! My first preference would be to resolve that first.

Task-1 Taking Cover : Create System Restore point.

( Just look there & continue here, I have narrowed down things as suitable for you )

(a) Press Win+X to open Power User Tasks Menu, click/tap on System.
(b) Click/tap on the System protection link on the left side.
(c) If prompted by UAC, click/tap on Yes.
(d) Make sure that you have system protection turned on for C:
(e) When ready to create a restore point, click/tap on the Create button
(f) Type a description you want to help you identify the restore point
(g) Click/tap on Create
(h) Windows System Protection will now create a restore point
(i) When successfully created, click/tap on Close
(J) You can now close the System Properties window

TASK-2 The Portable Utility : EasyBCD

Download EasyBCD zip & extract it to a folder.

EasyBCD.zip

TASK-3 Resolving BCD Issue

Be a little careful from here!

(a) Go to the EasyBCD folder & execute EasyBCD.exe

(d) Click BCD Backup/Repair
