hello,

 Ever scene I built my new rig and used windows 10 my system freezes while gaming. I spent months testing everything and came to one conclusion. It's win 10! So i took my old ssd from my former rig w/ win 7 and slapped in my new pc. I still have my bios set to boot to my new ssd with win 10. my question is this...

is there a way to easily swap boot up priority so i can switch to the win 7 ssd when i want to game? right now i have to stop boot up go to bios switch the boot ssd, save and restart.

You could have a minimal install of a linux distro, mainly use it as the boot manager though.

GRUB is very good with windows partitions most of the time.


You know you want me baby!
