    Trying to Dual Boot Windows 11 and 7


    Hey there! Hope you all are having a good day so im trying to dual boot Windows 11 and Windows 7 (because windows 7 is simply awesome and i want to experience it). I have a UEFI motherboard that can support Legacy boot. From what I found after doing a google search dual booting with 7 could cause issues like removing the Dual Boot selector screen and all that. Is there a way to safely dual boot it without any issues? Thanks!

    im installing windows 7 ultimate x64 SP1 btw.

    Yes, i am.

    What is the problem?

    Do you want to install win11 on a separate partition, same disk as win7 ?

    not hard to do.

    Don't worry about legacy boot as Windows 7 supports UEFI boot.

    You can run a virtual PC using either VirtualBox, VMWare, or Hyper-v.

    If you have another drive lying around, you could out W7 on that. This helps to avoid some issues that can arise when dual booting on one drive. also, if a drive fails, you only lose one system, not two.
