    WIN 7 to WIN 10 questions

    First, my 7 boot sequence is screwed up and many have tried to help with no luck.
    Will a Win 10 install fix this? I see a completely different set of partitions on my other WIN 10 machine disk management screen.

    Also, will Fred's non-destruct reinstall redo the various partitions, install system files, etc.?

    If your boot sequence is that bad there is no guarantee that install / re-install will fix it, unless you start from scratch.

    Is this your old thread? http://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...-where-are-you
    You could take up where it left off...

    Yes, that's me....
    What do you think will happen when I install Win 10 on top of this mess!

    BTW, When I boot without the rescue disk, now the system files can't be found. They are there, according to disk management.

    I can't say what will happen, the only way to find out is to try it - after you have made an image backup.

    I'd attempt to fix the boot problem before doing anything else, apart from imaging.

    cheers, Paul
