Dual boot Windows 7 Pro & 10 Pro ?

I just bought a Dell Inspiron 5558 laptop with Windows 7 Pro installed on it. It came with a Windows 10 Pro recovery disk and licence. Can I partition my hard drive and install the win 10 and have both OS on a dual boot ?

RE: Dual boot Windows 7 Pro & 10 Pro ?

Will the purple oem windows 10 disk do a clean install on a separate partition ? And does it have its own product key separate from the oem windows 7 key ? Will Dell deactivate my win 7 if I install win 10 on a separate partition ? I'm afraid to do anything after the disaster I'm having after upgrading my 4 year old ASUS. I clicked your link Jesse L. but do not see a way to do the private message.
