    Welcome to the forum. For multi boot you install the old Windows first. You post isn't English which doesn't help but win7 partition is set active ten needs to be set active for it go boot 10 often 10 has a small partition that it boots from them loads c if you deleted that you will have to do a repair install or run the new update ISO to install ten

    Windows 10

    Hello Sanpu25,

    Set up or repair the boot menu on a dual-boot PC. If you've installed more than one copy of Windows on a PC, you can use BCDBoot to add or repair the boot menu.
    When you are in Windows 7, open the command prompt as administrator.

    list volume (Note the volume letter where the Windows 10 is installed)

    bcdboot X:\windows (Replace "X" with the volume letter of the Windows 10 partition)

    For example, bcdboot d:\windows


    If you get error message "Failure when attempting to copy boot files" even if the drive letter is correct, then follow the following steps. Note that these instructions does not wipe the hard drive.

    - Boot the computer using the Windows 7/8/10 installation media.
    - On the first screen, press SHIFT+F10 to bring up the command prompt.
    - Run the following commands at the command prompt.

    bootrec /fixmbr (writes a MBR to the system partition but does not overwrite the existing partition table)

    bootrec /fixboot (writes a new boot sector to the system partition)

    bootrec /rebuildbcd

    The bootrec /rebuildbcd command will search for Windows installations not included in the Boot Configuration Data (BCD) and then ask you if you'd like to add one or more to it.
