I currently have windows 10 Pro on my computer. Until Windows 11 is finalize I would like to try it out and see how it stands up. So which is better, dual booting my computer system or putting Windows 11 on a Hyper Machine?
Thanks
Dan

Welcome to Eleven Forum.

The safer option is to use a Hyper-V VM. That way there is no risk at all that you'll mess up your existing install of W10 Pro. Hyper-V also has the advantage that a generation 2 VM will meet the W11 hardware requirements, even if the host machine doesn't.

This might be a dumb question, but if I run Windows 11 in Hyper-V VM, and windows 10 is running wouldn't some bad happen? How would I switch between the two operation systems. Honestly, I never turned my machine into two computers before....I think I will have to learn some more stuff before I do this.

The virtual machine runs inside the host. You connect to it via Remote Desktop. Think of it as a remote computer somewhere else that you are connecting to remotely. Personally, I prefer to dual boot, either on two separate physical drives or two separate partitions on the same physical drive. But I know how to keep the two operating systems separate. I know how to apply an image to the second drive or partition rather than just running setup.exe. I know how to manually create and fix system partitions that the computer boots from. If you don't want to learn all that, than running Windows 11 in a virtual machine is safer to your system.

I prefer to dual boot so that the new OS gets tested on the actual, physical hardware of the computer rather than the hardware simulated by the VM.

Okay I got the VM up and running. I've follow all steps. I even made a windows 11 ISO file as well and it's saved. Now how do I get the iso file to install on the drive I want to run windows 11 from? When I created the VM through the manager, I saw a place where it asked me for the ISO. But when it tried to open the file (I guess), it couldn't find the setup file. Do I need to go to the ISO file and click on the SETUP FILE myself and run it that way? I'm clueless.
Thanks
Dan

Ditto, NavyLCDR!

I want my testing to be on hardware. Just my way of doing things.

I dual boot, and if I can follow the instructions on dual booting, anyone can! :)

When I set up my dual boot machines, I started from a bare metal drive: IOW, I created two partitions, then followed @Brink's tutorial for booting Windows 7 & 10 (pretty sure that's the title). I clean installed one on the first partition, then clean installed the other one on the second partition.

@Brink has written a new tutorial for dual booting Windows 10 and Windows 11 here:


I find his tutorials to be the best.

Physical install is better, but dual booting is not preferred. It will cause a lot of conflict between the 2 OSes and will often result in boot up problem.
Hyper-V is safer but there could be limitations in terms of actual Windows user experience depending on the extent of how you want to test it.

I still prefer to put windows 11 on a VM. This why I can copy and paste between the two, not screw up my windows 10 machine as I have it just the way I like it. I did find out through more reading tho that when I hit the brows button to look for the ISO file, it finds that file, but not the setup file. Did I create the ISO wrong?

Not sure I follow.

An ISO is an image. (A kind of archive.) You have to mount it, or extract it, to get the files it contains.

Windows 10 can mount it directly from Windows Explorer.

I have no issues dual booting and never have. I dual booted with Windows 8 when Windows 10 was still an insider preview. I dual boot Windows 10 and 11 now. The biggest issue with dual booting is to turn off hibernation on all OS involved using the command:

Code:
powercfg -h off

Windows 10 can mount it directly from Windows Explorer.
Not when you are setting up a VM. When you are setting up a VM, you select the ISO file as a virtual DVD ROM drive. There is no need to mount it or extract it. Hyper-V, or whatever VM host software you are using, takes care of that automatically.

I guess I'm going to have to start from the start then to point of creating the ISO file. Another project for tomorrow night.
Now where did I put that page that tells you have to create the ISO file?
Thanks

I've never had any conflict between my dual boot OSes, BadRobot. Unless you consider that I have to either shut down or restart when I want to change from one OS to the other.

That's the biggest problem I can see now is the shut down ore restart. I'm lazy, besides that having dual monitors and things, I can see what is better when running my games and etc.

I have dual monitors, and they've made all the difference when I'm working on a tutorial for my senior citizen students. I think it would drive me crazy if I had to go back to one monitor!

You can do dual monitor when running Windows 11 in a VM. Enhanced Session allows that.

I have no issues dual booting and never have. I dual booted with Windows 8 when Windows 10 was still an insider preview. I dual boot Windows 10 and 11 now. The biggest issue with dual booting is to turn off hibernation on all OS involved using the command:

Code:
powercfg -h off
That's because you know what to do. But for people who are just exploring insider preview, it may not be so simple for them.
I do dual boot myself but I don't recommend it because I don't want to assume everyone knows what they are doing specially on their day to day system.
