Multiple OS Question

With the announcement that DX12 will be a Windows 10 exclusive I have been considering if i will finally leave windows 7 in the near future. The solution I am leaning toward is having multiple OS, but I have a question..

What I have now: 128gb SSD with Windows 7 1tb HDD mass storage and games 256gb SSD for my favorite games

What I would add: 128gb SSD with Windows 10

My question: If I ran a second OS, would there be any issues using my storage drives (HDD & 256-SSD) with both operating systems?

You can have both, but make sure that the bios only loads first the OS you want to run(ex run windows 10 install before windows 7 install). I do not believe that there would be any issues with this set up. Although maybe some shortcuts might be destroyed with the disc reassignment as the os is always C: drive

In terms of storage use, since both OS use NTFS, it should not be an issue.
