Hi, I am upgrading my main SSD.  Ran out of space on the 240GB, and adding a 500GB 860 Evo.

I am currently running Win7/64 and have lots of stuff installed.

I was going to put Win10/64 on the new SSD.


My question is... can I do this and have a choice of which SSD to boot to ?

Basically have it wait for me to choose before finishing the boot-up process. Or anything similar, I guess.


I did set up a laptop once to let me choose between 7 or 10, but that was when 10 was brand new so it's been a while, and that was on a single HDD.


Also, is there any reason I should not do this?


As always, thank you for any help or advice.

Buy Crucial MX500 instead of 860 Evo.

You can choose where to boot using motherboard BIOS boot order or boot menu or similar.
