      I have been having problems with my windows 10pc losing dll files and error codes My train of thought is to do a complete reinstall of windows 10 and reinstalling the programs that i like and use and hopefully clean out all the junk files that are in my current system that never got rid of. With the dual boot would mean that i could use the current system and do the clean install on new drive.

      My current system:
      Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz 4.20 GHz
      Installed RAM 32.0 GB
      System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
      Pen and touch Touch support with 255 touch points
      Edition Windows 10 Home
      Version 21H1
      Installed on ‎9/‎15/‎2020
      OS build 19043.1415
      Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3920.0

      PS sorry if the is a duplicate entery

      Hello Charles,

      First after making sure you have a complete backup of any data you care about. You should test the Hard Disk Drive or the Solid State Drive HDD/SSD to make sure it is not failing. You can do this by downloading a trial of HD Tune Pro from their website here. Once you have the program installed, you can then launch it and navigate to the health tab and look for any red or yellow warnings. If all looks well then you most likely have data corruption on your Storage device. You can run a check disk by following the directions here. If Checkdisk finds nothing to repair you can now the DISM tool to repair the Windows installation.

      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

      Hello Charles,

      Sorry I missed your initial question, yes you can and this is how you can do it if you follow this guide here.

      Here is a link to a recommended SSD
      Here is a link to a second SATA cable for data communications.
