Attach a new disk.
Install win10 to the new disk using bios/mbr.
Then reattach the win 7 disk.
Now the user can select which to boot via bios.

CPU G620 is probably running on an h61 mobo.
HP Pavilion p6-2118 - tower - Pentium G620 2.6 GHz - 4 GB - 500 GB Specs - CNET

The HP p6-2100 listed in Rowin's specs usually have amd cpu


Replacing the G620 with something like the i5 2400s would be a nice upgrade for that machine. They are very cheap now.

Compare G620 vs i5 2400

I'm not a beginner, been computing 22 years, just green about dual-booting, as I've done it only once. I've bookmarked the video, and when I'm ready, I'll view it again.
