Though I have a fairly good understanding of how it's done, it has been a long while since I've needed set up a dual boot system. I'm finally going to switch my main Windows 7 Pro work machine over to Windows 10 Pro, so I'd like to get some advice on the best way to set up a dual boot scenario - which is the best software to use etc.
I dislike doing upgrades, so I want to do a fresh install of Win 10 Pro.
The System Specs of the machine I'm going to Install Windows 10 to (Courtesy of Speccy) is as follows:
Mainboard: Intel Corp DH67CL (LGA1155) AAG10212-208
BIOS: Intel Corp Version BLH6710H.86A.0119.2011.0523.1030
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @3.40GHz
Chipset Model: Sandy Bridge
Installed Ram: 20.0 GB
Current Operating System: Windows 7 Professional - 64Bit SP1
System HDD: Samsung SSD 850 PRO 512G
Graphics: ATI AMD Radeon HD 5500 Series
Optical Drive: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NS90
I'm going to re-partition the Samsung SSD into 2 partitions so that I can work on the Win 10 Pro install when I have time, while I continue to work in Windows 7 Pro.
What do experts consider to be the best Dual Boot software to use for this purpose these days? Something that can be easily uninstalled once I decide that the transition is complete and I'm ready to kill the Windows 7 partition and then merge the two partitions together again?
Any gotcha's that I need to watch out for that I'm not aware of these days?
Some basic instructions and reasons for why you think one solution is the best etc. would also be appreciated.
