Ok thank you for your words. So I am guessing the answer to my question is no, I can not set up a dual booting system. Ane of course a full back up the drive iss step #1 always with me. MY original thought was to do a fresh install of all things that i want and need (there are a many of programs that have been installed/uninstalled) while still having a workable system at the same time. I see some titles below that i assu would be my next steps in my research so i have copies them and will move along.
Thanks again for returning my message
