Most of the people are very much interested to install the newly launched Operating System Windows 10 on their devices. But, it is not recommended to directly use Windows 10 as the primary OS because it is an unfinished product and it may have bugs and some other feature that may not work properly. Instead of putting your system at jeopardy, using a dual-boot system is the best option. Dual-boot configuration is nothing but running two different Operating Systems on a single device simultaneously. You can use both Windows 10 and Windows 8 at a time without having to uninstall currently using OS. There is other alternative for testing Windows 10 where you can install Windows 10 on Virtualbox using a Virtual Machine, but dual-booting is a safe method that gives complete control of your PC’s hardware along with Windows 8. You can then reboot your device to switch between your installed versions of Windows. This tutorial completely focuses on how to dual boot Windows 10 alongside Windows 8 and helps you create a dual-boot system on your device.
Initially, you need to make a backup recovery for your system. Before making any of kind of modifications on your device, make sure that you create a full system image backup so that you can rollback even if anything goes wrong. For a backup recovery, you need to have an external hard drive with enough free space or network share location to save the backup files.
This is the detailed process for the dual boot installation of Microsoft’s Windows 10 along with Windows 8 without having to remove your existing version of Operating system. Hope this guide helps you install two different Operating Systems on a single device and work on it simultaneously.
