I originally built my desktop and installed Win 8.0 onto it. I didn't care for Win 8 and broke down and bought a new version of Win 7, which I am very happy with.
The issue now is that I have an upgradable DVD of Win 8.0, which unless the free W10 upgrade isn't extended will not be upgradable for free after July 29.
So I'm now looking for a way to install the W8.0 onto a new 1Tb hard drive I have. This new HD would be in addition to the existing 1Tb HD that I have W7 installed on.
I'm not looking for step by step instructions here, hopefully just some names/keywords of procedures that will get this accomplished. I can do the searching. I know Dual-Booting is probably what I'm trying to accomplish but I'm guessing there are several ways to get this done.
I rarely use this desktop so it's not like I'd be switching back and forth from 7 to 10 very often at all. I just thought I might takes advantage of the free upgrade from 8.0 to 10 while I can.
The MB is a Biostar A780L3C (link attached).
I would probably want to have the computer boot into Win 7 most of the time.
