Hi Folks,

Not sure if this is the correct forum to post this so please except My apologies if it isnt !.

I have Windows10 Pro ( 64bit) installed on a SDD ( My main OS ), I aslo have a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit ) on a seperate SDD which is unplugged from My system at the moment. How can I plug it in and then choose which OS I wish to boot up from ?.

Please bare in mind that I use a Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse which wont allow Me to go into the BIOS when I turn Mt PC on.

Many thanks.

A lot of computers allow you to press a key to bring up a boot menu, such as F8 or F10 and you might be able to select the drive you want to boot there. Otherwise a boot loader would have to be installed and used.

Mnay thanks Triple6, however as I said in My original post F8 - F10 will not function until PC has fully booted up as to it being a Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse !.

Cheers

You will need to obtain another mouse and keyboard and adjust seem BIOS settings, does your computer have the older round PS2 mouse and keyboard ports or USB only? There should be an option to enable USB Keyboard support or USB Legacy support. Bluetooth keyboards can work in the BIOS and you will need a functional keyboard to use almost any boot manager or BIOS startup option.
