Installing Dual OS- Windows 10 and Windows Server 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I am having a problem with dual OS installation.

    On a brand new system, I installed windows 10 first and create second partition and tried to install server 2012 R2 but it is unsuccessful because while selecting disk volume it gives an error that OS cannot be installed on gpt partition.

    could somebody please help me with the solution ??

  • Hi Raj-Singh.

    Whenever you want to create a multi-boot configuration, you have to start by installing the oldest OS and then all the other ones in the next steps of the process.
    I suggest you to repeat the installation process: install Windows Server 2012 R2 first and then install Windows 10.

    Bye.
