Solved Boot priority problem with W7 & W10

July 29, 2015 at 14:59:20
Specs: Windows 7, Intel i5 4570 3.2 Ghz
Main SSD has W7 on it. I have a 2nd HDD 1TB partitioned with W10 trial and the rest of that is taken up by data storage. Problem now is at boot-up the the W10 is over-riding my main O/S W7. I don`t see the blue screen where I can select between the 2 HDD/ O/S. It was working but this also happened on my 2nd PC where the the same thing happened . So I have resorted the disconnecting my 2nd HDD until I can find a solution. Advice please and thanks.

✔ Best Answer
This is one useful "how to set up dual boot with win7 and 10... It may help you resolve what ails your setup; possibly point to how to change the obvious win-10 default boot?

http://www.howtogeek.com/197647/how...

This is specific to accessing the win-10 boot-manger etc...; and thus possibly change the default, and/or allow you see the options at boot up and thus select whichever
OS?
